Keat Hong Camp; home of 8th Singapore Armoured Brigade
The 8th Singapore Armoured Brigade (8 SAB) was formed in 1977 as an NS Armoured Brigade with three Reserve Battalions. They were housed temporarily at Kranji Camp. In 1980, 8 SAB shifted to Nee Soon Camp. The three Reserve Battalions that formed 8 SAB were phased out in the early eighties and were replaced with 3 new Armoured Battle Groups (ABGs).

With the concept of the Combined Arms Division, 8 SAB was converted into an active Brigade in 1990 under the command of 3rd Singapore Division. The Brigade had been housed at her previous premises at Keat Hong Camp.
