The Manstonettes270 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?

Far East Communications Squadron - Circa 1955293 viewsMy thanks to Peter Hayler who is standing behind the back row. A Cpl Engine fitter at that time from 1954-1957. The far East Coms Sqn had a fleet of Valletta aircraft used for transporting people about the far East also a variety of aircraft for the pilots in desk jobs to keep their hand in at flying. The sqn was situated just off the Changi Road and a hundred yards or so before the village. We walked along Wittering Road to and from the mess and our barrack block which was next to the Malcolm Club. The other side of the Malcolm club was the Wraf Block.Oct 26, 2013

Chua Boon Hwa, Daughter and Granddaughter.

Here is one of our Amah, Boon Hwa, who looked after my brother and me – and the parents – during our stay in Singapore between 1957 and January 1960, during which time we lived at East Coast Drive, Roseburn Avenue and finally at Lloyd Leas.

Anthony would love to hear from anyone who recognises Boon Hwa and her family
