15 Selarang Park Road, Changi263 viewsMy thanks to Marion Body for this photo. Marion lived here with her sister Madeliene (Maddy) in 1968. They were there for about a year with her father Malcolm, an officer (Lieutenant or Captain) in REME and mother Marguerite (Peggy). Marion particularly remembers the stories of how hundreds of POWs were billeted in the house that the four of them then occupied.

Cameron Hotel247 viewsA 2006 photo of the Cameron Hotel, thanks to Peter Chan. It was popular with RAF personnel in transit to the UK after their engagement was over. Cameron Hotel is located at Guan Soon Avenue, off Upper Changi Road. Jeffery Abdullah adds, that this hotel is located very near to Simei Housing Estate. If you take the MRT, the station that you need to alight will be SIMEI MRT Stn and then its a walking distance cutting through the footpath next to the new condominiums and private houses.

The Manstonettes301 viewsMartin Woodward sent this photo which was taken in 1959 at the RAF base in Changi in the scout hut which was on the perimeter of Changi airfield.

My father was stationed there from 1956/57/58/59, I was 13yrs old and lived in Manston road with my Mother Isobel.

While I was there, some friends who lived in the same road and I formed a group called the Manstonettes.

This photo shows me on the double base, next to me not known, and the three others were David and Colin Stocker with their younger brother Peter.

Does anyone remember the Manstonettes and the unknown guitarist?
