The Cenotaph, located in Wu Kau Tang Martyrs Memorial Garden at Bride’s Pool Road, is a memorial to honour the Hong Kong Independent Battalion of the Dongjiang Column, an anti-Japanese aggression guerrilla force, and the Wu Kau Tang villagers who sacrificed themselves to defend Hong Kong against the Japanese invaders during Japanese occupation of Hong Kong from 1941 to 1945.
