Lucy Childs


with_sue_and_family_-_singapore.jpg

My thanks to Lucy Childs for these family photos. Lucy said that,

"My father, Geoff, took over as OIC of RNWS Kranji (Kranji Wireless Station) in April 1970. The previous OIC had been Lt Fred Drew. My father was the last OIC of Kranji before the hand over to 9th ANZUK Signal Regiment in December 1971. The base was closed about 1 year after that.



The last 1st Lt. was Sub. Lt. Singleton. The last Chief RMech. was Warmsley.

The last Chief PO Regulator was CPO Farrell.

The last clerk was Mr. Ali.

The last typist was Kasinathan.

The last messenger was Mangudi.

The last captain of HMS Terror was Capt. Bradbury.

My father is particularly interested in the second world war history of Kranji when the base was used for code-breaking.

There were 7 bungalows on the base. We had no. 1 bungalow."

My thanks to Marie Byrne for these photos of Kinloss House. Marie and her husband were given a guided tour of the house, which is now a protected building and has been restored by and is used by AXA University. The outer buildings have all been demolished and the foundations were not removed. If anyone has photo’s of the old house interior etc AXA would love to have copies as a story board of the houses history is proposed.
