Seletar Airfield was the British Royal Air Force’s main base in the Far East, and equipped to protect Singapore’s naval base in Sembawang. On 7 December 1941, an Allied plane that had taken off from Seletar tracked a Japanese fleet heading to Malaya in the South China Sea. Unfortunately, it was shot down before it could file a report. The airfield was targeted during the first Japanese bombing of Singapore on 8 December 1941. After Singapore fell on 15 February 1942, the Japanese took over the airfield and Indian Prisoners-of-War were interned here.
