A collection of photographs taken by Lt Tadao Tomita of the 11th Regiment. Photographs include images taken during the fighting for the SICC Golf Course and in the area of Bukit Timah.

Collyer Quay and Turf City can be confirmed but the exact locations depicted in other photos have yet to be determined

Historic Context:

The image taken at Turf City does match tentatively with current road systems to the south of Bukit Tingii Hill. These images provide excellent evidence of the equipment being carried by the front line troops in combat and likewise for POWs heading into captivity.
