The Electric Light Emplacement at Siloso Point was replaced during the 1930s, by three Electric Light Emplacements mounted on stilts above the beach. An emplacement for a Twin 6-Pounder, Gun Director Tower and a Magazine for the Gun were also built. Access was by means of two staircases, one from the underground complex and the other from a path on the surface which led back to the entrance to the underground complex.


LEFT: Directly opposite the stairs down to Siloso Point is a steel door in the Blast Wall.

The Director Tower photographed before and after restoration. The windows have been glazed during restoration, something that would never have happened when the Fort was operational. Glass shattering from an explosion would have caused terrible injuries. Figures representing British gunners have been placed in the windows and a sound system has been installed. This broadcasts the sounds of a gun crew at work.
