Following a storm of outrage from Singaporeans of all walks of life over the naming of a war commemoration gallery, the government appears to have backtracked on its initial mistake.

Workers were seen working from about 9PM to remove the much contested sign, “Syonan Gallery”, which had cast a pall over the newly opened Old Ford Factory museum, a popular site that showcased historical artifacts from the Japanese invasion of Singapore and Southeast Asia.

This comes after PAP Minister Yaacob Ibrahim announced that the gallery would be renamed.

Within an hour, the gallery’s name had been removed from the front entrance of the museum.
