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

That's me! [] 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.

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

Hi Tom. Great site, lots of memories and pictures. Was at Tengah School/Bourne 68-71 with my twin brother Stuart, and Ian (St Johns). Lived at 58 Hunter Hill. Best posting we ever had smile Managed a short visit in 2002, very little left of old Singapore as I knew it back then!

Hi, my father John Green 4088588 was posted to f.e.c.s f.e.t.w Changi Melkshan Station on the 27.9.1952 I do believe he was an instrument technician and I know he was friends with a Mr Arthur Turner, the reason for my message is just to try and contact anyone who was stationed with him, thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope for a return, kind regards....

What a great site with some fantastic images.

My father was in the dockyard at Chatham and was posted to Singapore as inspector of riggers in 64, at the same time I had started my apprenticeship in the yard and should have gone with him. Sadly he was rejected on medical grounds.

Oh what I missed out on!!

Several years later I made it to the island while serving in the merchant navy, drydocking in Keppel and Sembawang.

Father had been in Singapore previously, departing in 1942 with the Japanese army hot on his heels.

Elaine, what is your surname? What year did you last see your friend? Did you go to school in Singapore?
