Recommended Posts

Gents, does anyone know what these gold anodised aluminium badge and title is for? These are from the 1970s Singapore era and read "Universities Air Squadron".

"The 14 University Air Squadrons have a long tradition of offering flying training to undergraduates and a chance to experience life in the RAF. Joining a UAS will provide the perfect introduction if you're considering an RAF career, whether in a flying or ground-based role. However, there is no obligation to sign up and by getting involved you're making no further commitment other than your time and effort whilst you're there and the training and personal development you receive will give you a head start in whatever career path you choose."

From this site:http://www.raf.mod.uk/universityairsquadrons/ which has information on RAF University Squadrons.

I would assume that Singapore, as many Commonwealth states, has maintained, or at least were maintain in the '70s, many of the 'mother country's' traditions.

They do. The RSAF maintain a UAS system that is based on that of the UK, with a dedicated squadron for undergraduate training, rather than various UASs dedicated to specific universities.
