I was so enthralled by this sloppy path next to the tomb wall of Fort Canning Hill. The fascination came from the tomb walls which were the collection of tombstones salvaged from the old Christian Cemetery. They were the pioneers from the western country in the 18th Century, one of them is George Coleman.
It is situated on both sides of the Fort Canning Centre. This is the back of the tombstones where it caught my eyes with the lovely afternoon beam.
Standing above the stairway and making guesses. Trying to inject the image of a holy land into my rocky mind! This could be the path where the most honorable contributors of the past saunter in and out daily, presenting us with the warmest and innocent smile.
You’ll able to see many pioneers of Singapore in the row of Heroes.
Mr. George Coleman may be watching me at somewhere, but I can’t locate him with certain disappointment!
Paying them the highest respect and honor.
Faces of glory.
At the Northwest direction, there are a few men standing for over hundred years.
The group of 12 graves are; Wladimir Astafiew, Elliot Charles Bovill, Nelson William Cashin, William Cuppage, Hans Hermann Eschke, Arthur D. Forbes, George Thompson Hare, Chik Hassan, LDMA Hooglant, Jean Rudolph Lambert, Lee Khia Soon, and William Ronaldson.
An old rain tree is their wisdom companion.
