State of Singapore Stamp

It is always interesting to see Singapore stamps that were used during the pre-independence days, i.e. before 9th August 1965.

Here's one such stamp, where the 'State of Singapore' stamp (blue stamp on the right) was used together with the Johor stamp. It sort of reminded me that not too long ago this region was still a relatively messy region with its many conflicts.

Anyone knows the 'national day' of the 'State of Singapore'? That date is not 9th August, but 3rd June, i.e. when Singapore was one of the many states of the Federation of Malaya.
