Singapore Navy Formed

Places No Comments

The Singapore Navy formation ceremony held at Telok Ayer Basin. The White Singapore Naval Volunteer Force Ensign was hoisted for the first time and the Blue Ensign lowered for the last time as the Singapore Navy’s white-uniformed men and women paraded under the sun beside Godown TA2. Traditionally, a Blue Ensign is flown by auxiliary ships, while ships of the Navy fly White Ensigns.

It was a proud day for the Singapore Navy. When Singapore became independent in 1965, the entire Navy comprised three vessels. These three vessels were re-commissioned on this day in 1967 and proudly bear the RSS (Republic of Singapore Ship) prefix – the RSS SINGAPURA, the RSS PANGLIMA and the RSS BEDOK.
