FDC The 50th Anniversary of the Republic of Singapore Air Force

The RSAF was set up on 1 September 1968 as the Singapore Air Defence Command to undertake the critical role of air defence for Singapore, following the announcement of British forces withdrawal from the region. From its humble beginnings of two Cessna aircraft on lease, the RSAF has since become an advanced and capable air force, ready to respond to threats to national security and to place the defence of Singapore as its top priority. The theme of the RSAF’s golden jubilee celebrations – Our Home, Above All – represents the RSAF's commitment to be always ready and capable to defend Singapore, and its people, 50 years and beyond. Set of seven stamps is issued 1.9.2018.

Thank you Eddie!
