2017 MAY Army Open House, F1 Pit Building, Singapore

7 May 2017 Saturday

270517 (Sat) Public Day One

In the past, the Singapore Armed Forces, RSAF, RSN and Army open houses were a biannual event.

Then the open houses took a back seat with more emphasis on foreign engagement and the local engagement became small scale events.

After a hiatus of five years the Army Open House (AOH) returned to the F1 Pit Building, this is the second time that the AOH is being organised there instead of the army camps.

Cheers.

Date:  27 (Sat) – 29 (Mon) May 2017
