During the colonial period of Singapore, Indian immigrants were mostly young adult men who came from India either to serve military duties or prison sentences. Some of them found little reason to return to India after having completed their contracts or sentences. They grew roots in Singapore and looked for work. A few others engaged in money lending or worked as clerks for the maritime companies lining the port of Singapore. It was only around and after WWII, that womenfolk started to join in larger numbers and the Indian community grew and the age group diversified as well. Seen here is a period uniform that would have been donned by an Indian (most likely a Sikh) police constable.
