Other Description:

A collection of images associated with the Sime Road POW and internment camps

Historic Context:

Latest work carried out by Changi Museum staff has revealed that much of the Sime Road Internee and POW camps still exists in the landscape. Much of the architecture visible today is associated with the post war RAF Command Centre, however there is plenty of abandoned platforms and hard standings associated with the original camp. This collection of images is an introduction to Sime Road. Much more research is required and it maybe that eventually the site warrants its own Virtual Museum in the future.
