During the March holidays, we visited the Navy Museum! It’s a bit hard to get to but definitely worth the trip with many interesting and interactive displays. We also had the privilege of witnessing the send-off of RSS Tenacious at Changi Naval Base.
At the museum, the kids learnt about our diplomatic relations with other countries and the relief efforts provided by our Navy, for example, during the Boxing Day tsunami. They got to experience driving a ship, sending Morse code, operating a gun and also tried out other hands-on exhibits. There was a dress-up segment that the kids (and the parents) loved.
Witnessing the send-off of RSS Tenacious was a moving experience as we saw how the servicemen bade emotional farewells to their loved ones. RSS Tenacious is supporting counter-piracy efforts in the Gulf of Aden for the next three months.
