A 1993 photograph of two 64-Pounder RML Guns near the entrance to the Fort. The guns are mounted on an emplacement originally built for two 12-Pounder QF Guns, and used during the Second World War for two Twin Lewis Guns. The Lewis guns formed part of the anti-aircraft defences of the Fort.
The original Magazine is beyond the guns.This emplacement is built on the site of the Fort's original No.1 7-Inch RML Gun Emplacement.
Two barrels from 7-Inch RML Guns mounted on plinths close to the shop and Surrender Chamber. The 7-Inch RML Gun used for coast defence was developed from the type used by the Royal Navy, as indeed were many other coast artillery guns, such as the 68-Pounders at the Navy Museum at Changi and at Ladang on Pulau Tekong. This type of 7-Inch RML Gun became known as ‘Bottle Guns’ because the shape of the barrel resembled lemonade bottles of the day.
Trench Mortars were valued during sieges because of the high trajectory.
The five Trench Mortars on display were originally displayed in front of the Victoria Memorial Hall. Later they were moved to the National Museum, where they were placed outside. They were moved to the Fort in 1969.
Two 25-Pounders near the entrance to the underground complex at Siloso Point.
The 25 -Pounder was first brought into service by the British Army in 1939. It was widely used by British and other forces for many years in counter-battery, anti-personnel and anti-tank roles. It was probably the best artillery piece to see action anywhere during the Second World War.
The8-Inch BL Gun, is shown here mounted at Siloso Point in 1993.
It is one of four 8-Inch Guns emplaced in Singapore - Two on Mount Serapong and two at Fort Tanjong Katong. Prior to this gun being displayed at Fort Siloso, it was mounted at Blakang Mati’s football field. It was brought to the Fort in 1974.
