An aerial shot of RNWS Kranji from the south east (approx)136 viewsAn aerial shot of RNWS Kranji from the south east (approx) showing the full expanse of the hill top station. The two storey building to the centre left of the photo was the Signal Training Centre (STC) which in my Dad's time was run by Sub Lt. Singleton who trained any signalmen who came up from the fleet. The station was a communications training base for many passing servicemen.

The two buildings to the south of the rectangle road were 2 remaining barracks (the foundations of former barracks can be seen around the rectangle. Opposite those barracks are 2 bungalows lived in by CPOs Warmsley and Maddox.

In the trapezium shaped road to the right is a long white bungalow which was the police quarters and the green area within the trapezium shaped road is where they held the Muniandi festival.

The straight road leading north from that area goes past the cinema on the left and several storage buildings including the diesel storage unit. The road then bends round to the left past the Popperwell's house on the right. It then passes behind the main buildings of the station. You can just see the east facing wall of our bungalow before the road disappears behind the microwave tower. From that road you could look out over the aerial field to the northeast. I believe this is now where the Singapore army Signal School is. I think Kranji Expressway now runs beneath this point in the valley between the former aerial field and the hill rising to the station.

Aerial view of RNWS Kranji circa 1971147 viewsAerial view of RNWS Kranji circa 1971. The large building closest to the shot was the PMO's "bungalow". Beyond it are the tennis courts and the swimming pool which you can just see surrounded by seats and umbrellas. The large aerial is the microwave aerial. In front of it is a barracks. A similar one off shot was converted to an Australian social club and called "the Geoff Childs Club!" after my Dad!
