The Battle of Pasir Panjang

This comic follows the plotline for today’s Monthday, so it is not that funny. Also, it’s my first semi-serious comic.

Basic CMYK

There’s not much to say here. Mostly everything about the Battle of Pasir Panjang has been covered inside the comic. (Oh yes, except the date, it was 11-13 of February 1942, )

So, I’ll take the chance to talk about previous battles. Well, before the Battle of Pasir Panjang, there was the battle of Bukit Timah and then before that there was the Battle of Kranji.

The Battle of Kranji wasn’t as big as the Battle of Pasir Panjang. There were only 2000 men from the Japanese and 1000 from Singapore. However, it was Japan’s most difficult part of conquering Singapore. The Japanese wanted to capture Kranji as they could fix the Causeway connecting Singapore and Malaysia. The British had actually blown up the bridge, so that they could slow down the Japanese. (for a week) So, the Japanese wanted to fix it so that their other troops could come in more easily. However, the British had come prepared with Australian gunners and bombers. Still, the Japanese won by calling reinforcements and basically thrashing them all.

The Battle of Bukit Timah wasn’t a close fight. It was obvious from the start that the Japanese would win. They fought through the soldiers bravely, but they were no match against the heavily armed Japanese. There were some Chinese members of the army who fought courageously, some to their deaths, and the Japanese lost quite a fair amount of soldiers. To get revenge, the Japanese attacked a Chinese village and attempted to kill them all.

All right, so that’s all for now. I’ll be posting a Monthday comic tonight, so keep watch. On a final note, I will write a little status check on myself, so that in the future, when iPhones become so slim that you can’t see them if you look vertically, I can still look back at these old posts and think back to the good old times.
