High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The SGH War Memorial is located within the grounds of the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) in Outram. This memorial marked the tragedy and the burial site of a group of medical students from the King Edward VII College of Medicine, who were killed during the Second World War in Singapore. In 2005, the memorial, along with eight other historic sites of SGH, was incorporated as part of the Outram Campus Heritage Trail that allow visitors to explore the important historical landmarks that are closely linked with the history of medical education in Singapore. Built in 1882, the Singapore General Hospital used to occupy the site of a Sepoy Camp (Sepoy is from the Hindi 'Sipahi' for 'Indian troops') of the British East India Company. As a result, the hospital grounds is known to the Chinese to this day as sipai poh, meaning 'Sepoy plain' in the Hokkien dialect. Located nearby was the Outram Prison (now demolished), which was the site of the public executions of the 1915 Singapore Mutiny.
