Pillbox @ Pantai Balok, this is one of the many reinforced concrete bunkers built by the British in ww2, for defense & offense (strike against) equipped with weapons. These pillbox derived it’s name from pills sold in cylindrical or hexagonal containers. The pillboxes are hexagonal shaped.
Anticipating the Imperial Japanese Army (IJA) would use the coastal route to invade Malaya at that time but the IJA landed in Singora Patani (Thailand) & use the land route. Completely contrary to British thoughts, they used bicycles (called charging force) & conquered Malaya in about 2 months.
Just across the road next to this pillbox, there is a private property call Villaku Residence (for rental)
