Boys' Brigade Uniforms: Singapore

Figure 1.--Singapore boys appear to wear a uniform rather sumilar to the New Zealand Boys' Brigade uniform.

The Boys' Brigade is one of the better known uniformed Singapore youth groups. The Boys' Brigade is the oldest of all the uniformed youth groups, but was not founded in Singapore until the 1930s. The first Singapore Boys' Brigade company was founded in 1930. There were about 5,300 Singapore boys envolved in the Boys' Brigade in 2002, including both primary and secondary school age boys. TheBrigade has a strong religious focus, explaining "The Brigade aims to advance Christ's Kingdom among boys and to promote the habits of obedience, reverence, discipline, self-respect and all that tends towards a true Christian manliness. The Brigade program includes educational, physical, social and spiritual activities which include citizenship and personal enrichment courses, drill, adventure training, civil defence training and community service and the inculcation of Christian moral values. The uniforms appear rather similar to New Zealand uniforms.
