Pen Pal From Malacca

In 1953 my friend Steven Chong visited me and I took him sight seeing to various parts of the island. I took many photos with him but only 3 was found. The above photo shows a British airbase in Singapore. The background had a few houses. They could be quarters for the airbase personnels. I think the Royal Air For (Malaya) signboard was at the junction of 2 roads. I have forgotten the name of the roads. Does anyone knows its exact location?

The photos below are easy to guess.

Hi Uncle Phillip,

I came across your blog while I was googling for pudu jail pictures. I love reading your blog and i love seeing old pictures which are black and white! Very nice blog! I hope you don't mind if I link your blog to mine.
Keep on blogging and I can't wait to read more stories from you.

I thought so, but where was the location of the signboard?

I worked t tengah in the late 70s and lived two miles away for many years. tengah did not have hills. so I think it is either Seletar or Changi. I guess it is change, maybe where AETI used to be.
