The Singapore Volunteer Corps has a long history starting in the late 1850s. The first uniform was green, and a brown 'holland' uniform for field wear. They lasted a few years but were reborn in scarlet with green facings in the 1880s. From the late 1890s khaki drill was worn, with some coloured embellishments at times.
As to weapons, they have used the gamut of British rifles through to artillery pieces and armoured cars of a local design.
There is a reprint of the history of the SVC floating around, I'm currently waiting for my copy to arrive.

Well, thank you. What year is shown on my card?
And what about revolvers and swords?

If you search the Internet, I seem to remember that a combined Hong Kong-Singapore artillery battery was part of the Chindit campaign in Burma in 1944.
