We were there from 1967-70 so I was only 4 went we left the UK.  Dad had gone on a few months ahead of us.  We had a short while in a hotel and then moved to Jalan Chempaka Kuning.  We then later moved to Wittering Road, Changi.

Dad worked on Herc's with 48 Sqdn.  I started school at Changi Juniors.  My sister who is 8 years older went to Changi Grammar School.  Unfortunately my brother became very ill while we were there and didn't survive.

Although then young I've got many memories from that period; the Amah's market in Changi Village, the night George Photo burned down and learning to swim with tied and inflated pyjama bottoms among others.
