barracks perch right above most of the structures on the site.
You can't but think that this position at the top of Pengelih
hill seems very vulnerable to enemy fire?
Structurally the building looks solid and in typical tropical
architecture it has high ceilings and through ventilation holes
at the top. The design mimicks other barracks as seen in other
WW2 British military facilites in Singapore and Penang.
There are also 2 shower cubicles at the corner of this building
as well. These ceramic shower cubicles are maker stamped "Wm.B.Morrison
& Son. Glasgow".
