So happy to find this site, amazing memories of my childhood. Lived in Airview Towers and Dempsey Road, Tanglin, 1966/1968. I went to Wessex infants Sch then Pasir Pangjan.
Dad was Bill Dodge, mum Fia, was German. I had two older sisters, Anna and Heidi.
Remember Tanglin swimming pool, every day after school, and the lovely old guy who always made us tea and toast after swimming! Loved going to the cinema twice a week.
Cycling round camp, botanical gardens.
I remember Alan Hughes, the Vicar.
I’m sure my best little friends at home were twin boys called Gary and David Winning.
Would love to hear from you if you remember any of us.

hi All

It was great to go to the london meeting on Wed 22nd Nov in the Chandos. I would have loved to stay but I had other arrangements. Everyone was so friendly and Thomas gave me his card to get here.
I feel quite old as my siblings and I were in Singapore from Aug 1956 to 1958 the last 3 months being under house embargo because of the fighting in Town. my parents each slept with a gun under their pillow - we shipped out on the last trip of the MS Dilwara in the Oct of 1958. I have photos of that time and will put hem together. WE were the first service children to fly abroad unaccompanied as our parents had gone to Singapore a year ahead of us, and that was the beginning of an exciting 2 years. Will tell you more if interested when I get my photos together to forward here.

our family name was Speight and we lived at 9 Lock Road Gillman Barracks and my brother and I went to Alexandra junior school - the old one above the swimming pool and my sister went to I think it was Ayr Rajah Road infants, just by the barracks. my great Aunt died of cancer in 1957 whilst we were there, she had not wanted us to go as she was a prisoner of war in Changi and her husband an Australian died after three months on the railway. She survived for another 10 years.

So Singapore is in my DNA. It would be good if some other 70 year old's could join me in our memories.

regards

Margaret Gardener. I live in South Wales UK

This is a complete longshot but wonder if anyone remembers my parents. I was born in Singapore in 1967. My father Thomas Collins was I believe in the royal navy and was possibly Scottish. He was married to my mum Margaret Collins from London. Apparently things didn't end well and we moved back to UK shortly after my birth, not seen him since. If anyone has a photo of him or any memories please get in touch.

My late father f/sgt Richard Barton was seconded to the Malaysian Air Force based in Kuantan from 1967-71. My twin brother David & I went to Bourne School & St Johns & were boarders .
I remember some names from Kuantan ....
twins Julian & Anthony Quinn & Jenny Nagle .
If there's anyone out there who remembers me or David it would be lovely to hear from you .

By the way, the link to Tanglin Infants School on this page does not seem to be working.

That's me! [www.singas.co.uk] On the back row with glasses. I have the same photo. My Dad Paddy Evans was in the Signals in Singapore 1961-64 (and my album says this is 1964 - but it could be wrong). My brother Adrian will have been a year below me. I think I recognise Philippa Baglee, third from the left on the front row, whose family (Dawn, St John and son David) came back to Britain with us on the boat in 1964, and then I believe emigrated to Australia.

A few years ago I had a six hour flight change-over in SG, and set out to find our old house in Ridley Park, Tanglin, now a highly desirable address. I found it easily, and quite by chance the house was empty and open, having a complete makeover. It was 8am and I was able to wander about at will as the painters arrived. With the place empty, stripped back, it was as if nothing had changed. I found places in the garden we used to play and an old light switch embedded in the plaster that was still there.
Thanks to everyone whos posted photos here. It's hugely evocative.

I came to the site, by the way, searching for memorabilia after watching Hayley Mills in 'Pretty Polly' last night, filmed in SG in 1966ish. Also hugely evocative. I've got 'Five Ashore in Singapore' lined up for tonight.

Hello
My family were in Singapore from 1960 to 1963. My late Father (David Jewell)was in the Merchant Navy and took a thee year posting with (I think) Cable and Wireless. I would love to know more about our time there and discover which area we lived in (possibly Station Road). Is there anyone who can help me get started?
Many thanks
