Titled Singapore Gurkha Photography Museum, it is the first photographic archive of the Singapore Gurkha community displayed publicly online.
These old photographs span from the 1950s till today – with a focus on the 1950s, 60s and 70s.
Some of the archive’s objectives include:
To document and preserve precious photographs of the community during the establishment and early days of the Singapore Police Force Gurkha Contingent
To become an important visual archive for research and understanding of Singapore’s history
To provide a platform that facilitates conversation and understanding of a migrant community among Singaporeans or between them and the Singapore Gurkha community.
