Calling all Veterans!

 

The National Archives of Singapore (NAS) is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. In conjunction with this, NAS would like to invite you to donate historical materials related to Singapore's past. The donated materials will further enrich their current collections on Singapore's history and heritage.
 

Do you have old photographs which captured a kampong scene or an iconic landmark, or documents of an organisation that you once worked at that is no longer in operation, or audio-visual materials such as radio and television programmes which were broadcast in the early days of Singapore? These items hold precious untold stories of Singapore.
 

The National Archives of Singapore is on a search for these materials with the following themes:

  • Old photographs of landmarks
    Photographs featuring past landmarks of Singapore, for example the Satay Club and Kallang Gasworks, as well as the activities which were held there.  
     
  • Materials of old organisations that are no longer in operation
    Materials such as documents, correspondence, collaterals, posters, invoices and publications of organisations that no longer exist.   
     
  • Audio-visual materials of radio and television programmes
    1. The first television broadcast on 15 Feb 1963
    2. The 1969 National Day Rally speech (video)
    3. Broadcasts of Malaysia Cup football matches featuring Singapore teams, and
    4. 'Kids Adventure', a series of Chinese-language public service broadcast programmes produced by Peach Blossom production house in 2006.

If you have something interesting to contribute, donate your materials at this event!
