Your chance to visit the Navy Museum at Changi Naval Base, and listen to Mr Mok Ly Yng share fascinating stories about Changi revealed in historical maps and charts.
One of the stories involves DPM Teo Chee Hean's facebook post on 12 March 2018, showing a rare Spanish chart depicting the area around Singapore Island and the southern part of the
Malay Peninsula. This 1778 chart was presented to DPM Teo by the Director of the Naval Museum of Madrid, Vice Admiral Fernando Zumalacárregui. The label on the eastern coast of Singapore Island was intriguing. It read: barrancas coloradas, or red ravines in English. In every other map or chart depicting this area, the description was almost always 'red cliff', but never before described as 'red ravines'. What could be the reason(s) for this difference?
