Family and tank


family and tank 1, originally uploaded by Wahj.

If you walk through the park at at Bukit Chandu, you eventually get to the top of Kent Ridge Hill. The site itself was the scene of fighting during the Japanese invasion, and a tank has been parked here as a memorial. I took this snapshot of a family with their kids clambering around the tank because it looked so ... domestic.

[for military buffs out there, the tank is an AMX-13, a post-war French design whose main gun is a copy of one of the most famous tank guns ever - the 75mm in the Panther tank]
