The Republic of Singapore Navy’s (RSN) Changi Naval Base will soon get a new name.
The 86ha naval facility’s name will include RSS Singapura, after one of the RSN’s first vessels, The Straits Times (ST) has learnt.
The new name, “RSS Singapura – Changi Naval Base”, will take effect on May 15.
… Dr Collin Koh, a research fellow at the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies‘ Maritime Security Programme, said: “Naming a shore-based installation after a ship is not unique, and is practised by other navies.”
