Displaying strength, resilience and vigilance of our defence pillars, the Mobile Column 2015 will be the largest in terms of size and numbers! Featuring 26 platforms new to the Mobile Column with 177 platforms in total and involving 1,500 personnel, we can certainly expect nothing less than ordinary in this year’s Mobile Column display!
Looking at the above video, it reminds me what Singaporeans have built together for the past 50 years. It shows the commitment of our security forces to protect our home and keep us safe.
I just want to say a big THANK YOU to our Singapore Army, RSN and RSAF, Singapore Civil Defence Force and Singapore Police Force to keep our home country safe so that we can enjoy peaceful nights – every day and every year.
This year, the Mobile Column will feature four distinct segments, giving spectators a glimpse of the capabilities, readiness and vigilance of the SAF, SPF and SCDF in various settings. The theme is “Strength” and there are 4 segments to this year’s theme – Giving Strength to our Nation, Strength in Action, Strength for our Home, and From Strength to Strength.
After rolling past the Padang, a section of the Mobile Column made up of 28 vehicles will form the Celebrations Trail around Marina Bay. The Celebrations Trail will pass iconic landmarks along the Singapore skyline, such as The Float @ Marina Bay and Marina Bay Sands, before joining Singaporeans on the Esplanade Bridge to recite the Pledge and sing the National Anthem at 2015hrs.
I’m looking forward to SG50 National Day Parade and the Mobile Column!
