I hope you people don't get sick of this place...it's another series of Punggol Beach...

"On 28 February 1942, some 300-400 Chinese civilians were killed along the Punggol Foreshore by hojo kempei (auxiliary military police) firing squads. They were among tens of thousands who lost their lives during the Japanese Sook Ching operation to purge suspected anti-Japanese civilians within Singapore's Chinese Population between 18 February to 4 March 1942. The victims who perished along the foreshore were among 1,000 Chinese mates rounded up following a house-to-house search of the Chinese community living along Upper Serangoon Road by Japanese Soldiers."

the "more-likely" site is the part after the jetty... facing the small insland.

the empty piece of land which has a concrete drain was the mass burial ground.. the small hill facing this empty land was the machine guns firing site :sweat:
