Singapore F A medal.
Singapore FA was a representative team of footballers representing the Football Association of Singapore in domestic competitions run by the Football Association of Malaysia. This is separate from the Singapore national team, as it permits overseas players to play - in essence it is a club side (although top level domestic football in Malaysia has traditionally been played by representative sides of state football associations).

Founded by T C Bogaardt in 1890, Straits Steamship was incorporated in Singapore on 20th January as a public company of capital half a million Singapore Dollars.
Straits ships served Penang, Sumatra, South Siam and the west coast of the Malay peninsular. Their shallow drafts and small tonnage made them useful for ports set miles up winding mangrove-fringed rivers with no navigation aids except those provided by nature. Straits established a reputation for carrying cargo and passengers in and out of the littles ports safely and to a regular schedule.
