My first documents are probably my Birth Certificates. Maybe people during our time we have 2 copies of such Birth Certificates.
The first copy of Birth Certificate which termed the Duplicate copy is on a poorer quality paper and of red print. This was probably issued within 1 to 2 weeks from birth.
Front Side : You may see at that time, it’s called State of Singapore instead of Republic of Singapore. Also my parents’ Nationality are British Subject though they are also born in Singapore.
Rear Side : The rear side is the Vaccination Notice.
4 years later, I was issued with the Original Birth Certificate (1966). It’s still known as State of Singapore. Not much difference from the current Birth Certificate, at least from one glance at the front.
Rear Side : See the various stamps from Primary School and KK Hospital.
