We resided at No. 9 Jalan Chempaka Puteh, nr Bedok (pronounced bedo) and I went to Changi Junior School.

Many thanks to Colin Murphy for these photos of Alex Infants from 1967 to 1969. Colin said " My father was a Sergeant in the New Zealand Army at the time and was posted to HQ FARELF at Tanglin as a Movements NCO. My younger brother attended pre-school at Tanglin. Dad represented 28ANZUK Bde in Cricket and I have many memories of watching cricket at Tanglin and Nee Soon along with regular trips to the Dover Road Swimming Pool and the Tanglin Pool. I returned to Singapore for a second time in 1975 and this time attended the New Zealand Services School on Admilralty Rd, in Sembawang near the Naval Base."
