Some of the photos I started the Memories of Singapore website with, plus some latter editions. The site started with about six pages many years ago with my photos of my friends I had lost contact with in the hope of finding them. It just blossomed from there, to what it is now.

I can't remember her surname (could be Harrison), but she was the love of my life for at least a week. Sandy came from New Zealand and attended Bourne School, she also played Hockey for Bourne. This photo was taken at Dover Road Swimming Pool in 1968.

No 2 Civilian Mess - Mata Road. HMNB.231 viewsMy thanks to Bernard Mennell for this photo. Bernard said in his email "I notice that your fascinating site has no reference to the Civilian Messes in the Naval Base where single/unaccompanied staff lived. I had a wonderful time living briefly in No 2 Mess in Mata Road from Dec 1970 to March 1971 - the photograph shows the main living quarters with part of one of the Accommodation Blocks. Half a mile away next to Beaulieu House was No 1 Mess, that accommodated more senior staff and was reputedly less fun! Both closed in October 1971. The area is now Sembawang Park but there is no trace of either Mess. I don't know how many such civilian Messes there once were, but the official 1968 plan of HM Naval Base identifies a No 6 Mess in Jamaica Road."
