Fort de Kock

Fort de Kock (Bukittinggi; 100.369E 0.306S) was a Dutch military post in Sumatra, located on a plateau whose elevation provided some relief from the sweltering heat of the lowlands. At the time war broke out in the Pacific, the post was garrisoned by about a battalion of troops.

Fort de Kock became the headquarters of 25 Army after the Japanese occupied Sumatra in 1942.
