Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Singapore's military role stems from its strategic geographical location, an asset exploited by local settlers and foreign colonists alike. Archaeological excavations have discovered remnants of forts and other forms of military fortifications in pre-colonial Singapore. Sir Stamford Raffles, founder of modern Singapore, selected Singapore in 1819 to establish a new colony with the security concerns of British interests in the Far East in mind against the Dutch. Thus, Singapore played an active role in British military interests for decades, particular in the years leading up to the world wars. The Singapore Armed Forces has its humble origin in the Straits Settlements Volunteer Force, which in turn had its roots in the Singapore Volunteer Artillery. The Motto of the SVA is "In Oriente Primus", which is still in use today by the artillery formations of Singapore Army.[3] In 1915 it helped suppress the mutiny of Sepoys in Singapore.
