MacDonald House bombing: Remembering an outrage

MacDonald House bombing: Remembering an outrage

More than 250 people attended a memorial service in front of MacDonald House Monday, the 49th anniversary of the bombing there.

The service was organised by the Singapore Armed Forces Veterans' League to remember the events during Konfrontasi, an offensive by Indonesia, and honour those who suffered and lost their lives, including the soldiers who fought and fell.

Acting Minister for Culture, Community and Youth Lawrence Wong was among those who attended.

Survivors of the MacDonald House bombing and the families of those who lost their lives, as well as veteran soldiers who were deployed during Konfrontasi, were also at the memorial service.
