Remembrance Sunday Service at Kranji War Memorial will be on 10 Nov 2013

Last year, I took part in my first Remembrance Sunday service at the Kranji War Memorial. In essence, as best as I could understand, Remembrance Day is a day to remember the British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women who have died in the line of duty since the end of World War I. Remembrance Sunday is held on the second Sunday in November, which is the Sunday nearest to Remembrance Day. This year, Remembrance Sunday falls on 10 Nov 2013.

If you are interested to take part in a similar service this year on Remembrance Sunday, I have found out from the Singapore St. Andrew's Society's website the following information on the service:

Title: Service of Remembrance
Venue: Kranji War Memorial
Date: 10 Nov 2013 (Sun)
Time: 7.30 a.m.
Nearest MRT station: Kranji MRT station
Bus services to get there: 160, 170, 178, 960, 961

To get to the Kranji War Memorial, unless you are an important invited guest who will be given special access passes to drive into the Kranji War Memorial, I highly recommend you travel to the War Memorial using any one of the following methods:

1) Take the MRT train to Kranji MRT station. Either walk or take bus services number: 160, 170, 178, 960, 961 to bus stop #45119 (two bus-stops away) along Woodlands Rd. Take a 10 -15 minutes stroll into the Kranji War Memorial.

2) Take a taxi to Woodlands Rd and alight nearby bus-stop #45119. Then take a 10 - 15 minutes stroll into the Kranji War Memorial.

For more directions to get to the Kranji War Memorial, please read: How to get to Kranji War Memorial by Leone Fabre.

Attire wise, you may like to take note that even though there is no specified dress code, I had observed that most of the guests will be wearing uniforms or formal attire for the service.
