Our Mums and Dads at a "Shipwrecked party" held at Tanglin Sgts & WO's Mess 1967 My friends Mum and Dad Mr and Mrs Carden-Horton first on the left, My parents - Mabs Fisher and Eric Fisher, Mr and Mrs Wittern, I am afraid that the faces are familiar (all neighbours from Demsey Road) but the names escape me


My friend Lindsay on the left

and myself aged 10.

I think this was taken in the Botanical gardens.



Living so close to the Botanical gardens

(just across the road from our quarters)

meant we often had visits from

hungry monkeys who used to noisily

bang the bin lids to get our attention.

These photos were taken round the

back of our quarter in Dempsey Road.


My best friend Jane Carden-Horton, she also lived next door. We used to spend all our money at the Amahs market on Monkees records and practice dancing to them.   Wish I could make contact with her again.

The tree that my Mum is sitting on

is one we used to jump off into the sea.



You can see from these photos the gaping holes that had to be netted further down to keep the sharks out!

You could stay in the rooms at the end of the swimming pedang with a fantastic view over the straits to Jahore Baru

My Mums certificate of cholera vaccination, this was the necessary downside of living in Singapore as the vaccinations used to make me very ill.
