Amazing storey. Wonderful workmanship.
Some very interesting stories like these from WW2.
Our old home in Singapore was commandeered by the Japanese and the soldiers created a chapel in one of the rooms.
Fairly recently discovered.

Thanks for posting.

Hi Avondale - Japanese soldiers. I wonder what god they worshipped?
Interesting story. Please expand. Did you or your family get back to your old home eventually?
However, as a kid I lived opposite an Anti Aircraft battery, during the later part of the war it became a POW camp. The Italian POWs used to lift me over the barbed fence for a game of football.They were just happy to be out of the war. They were better fed than we were. When they lifted me back over the fence I was always stocked-up with big blocks of cake, jam and bottles of Camp coffee. All rationed here at the time.
When the Italians were repatriated, German POWs were moved in, they were more disciplined and slightly better guarded, but surprisingly, they had a German sentry (rifle not loaded) on the gate and an overweight, useless English staff sergeant in charge of the camp. You couldn't make it up - political correctness was rife in those days when I look back on it.

Some intriguing storeys linger.
These were POW's that created the chapel, and permitted by the occupying forces.

Yes mum and dad returned. Dad from Changi, mum from Nottingham (left on ship just before the fall), I was born after the war, and lived there for a couple years.
Not my storey, but it would be interesting to post here an image of the POW chapel (room)

Nicely composed, nice colors. I like how the street lights lead your eyes to the church.

Thanks. Yes there's a bunch of them on the island. On the New Years Eve they change to 2019 at midnight.

Nicely framed here by the trees, nice exposure.
Not your fault, but someone always seems to park a vehicle next to such a nice building, You did a good job minimizing those cars.

There are dozens of truly amazing buildings in this thread and no one could pick the best but this one is certainly in the top 5. For me, the color of the stone is what catches my eye first.
