Me refusing to have my photo taken166 viewsMe refusing to have my photo taken lying on one of the poolside rattan chairs. The Kranji pool was just a short walk up the hill from our bungalow. We spent a lot of our time here. Once I was bitten on the face by a piedog and another time I got some glass embedded in my foot. Each time I was driven to the local medical centre in a dustcart!

An aerial shot of RNWS Kranji - taken from a southerly direction160 viewsThis is taken from a southerly direction, showing WRNS Kranji with the aerial field behind and the Jurong Straits on the horizon. To the right of the aerial field is the straight "Woodlands Road", then the railway and Yew Tee Village. My father thinks the road rising north from Yew Tee was the Bukit Timah Road.
