British Colonial Singapore collection


Recommended Posts

Hello dear members,

I live in Singapore and I have a fair collection of Straits Settlements, British Colonial Singapore and Malaya Police, Military, Prison and Fire forces cap badges, insignia and uniforms.

My unfinished website is as follow:

Do feel free to contact me for trade or sharing of common interest.

(I am interested in items from Singapore and Unfederated Malaya States such as Johore, Sabah, Perlis, Kalantan, Tregannu etc.)

Interesting specialisations Kit - how about posting some photos & information in the British & Commonwealth militaria, medals & police forums about the organisations & their uniforms, insignia & equipment?.

Also of course, there will be other areas of the forum appropriate for some of your collection, depending on the period

The only dealings with Singapore Forces I've ever had are rides in military helicopters & meeting a few of army & airforce personnel at briefings & in bars & cafes.

And do you have any British insignia etc from the British military in Singapore?

Will do so the soonest :). Yes, I do have a complete 1970s Singapore British forces cap badges. However, I have gave it away 2 years ago to another collector without photographing them. I only kept the colonial 1950s, Singapore Naval Police Force cap badge for myself.

Regards,

Kit

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
