The Three Must Get Beers – first prize was a case of champagne;  which was duly stolen from the unlocked boot of the Rickards’ Jowett Javelin when they all stopped at Bedok Corner for a late snack on the way home… note modified flying boots!

Chua Boon Hwa, Daughter and Granddaughter.

Here is one of our Amah, Boon Hwa, who looked after my brother and me – and the parents – during our stay in Singapore between 1957 and January 1960, during which time we lived at East Coast Drive, Roseburn Avenue and finally at Lloyd Leas.

Anthony would love to hear from anyone who recognises  Boon Hwa and her family
