SingPost launches stamps celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Republic of Singapore Air Force
SingPost’s 50th Anniversary of RSAF stamp set
Issuance Date: 1 September 2018
SINGAPORE, 29 August 2018 – Singapore Post Limited (SingPost) will launch on 1 September 2018 a new set of stamps celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF).
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.
The set of stamps features various platforms and vocations in the RSAF’s transformation journey that enable it to carry out a full spectrum of operations from peace to war. The stamps come in seven denominations: 1st Local, 2nd Local, 60 cents, 70 cents, 90 cents, $1.30 and $2.
The stamps will go on sale from 1 September 2018 at all post offices, the Philatelic Store, the Singapore Philatelic Museum, and will be available online at shop.singpost.com.
