Photo 5 My son with their cat "Onion". Note the 'docked' tail. Back in the sixties all cats in Singapore seemed to have "damaged" tails. I was told that it was a Chinese custom to do this as only perfect creatures were admitted to heaven. So cats were treated thus so they'd not displace a human when the time came?

Photo 4 RAF Seletar Yacht Club from one of the old flying boat hangars. Note the Austin Mini, one of the first in Singapore.1962?

Photo 3 Amah's market Jalan Kayu 1962?

Photo 6 Having our grass cut. I think these young Tamil lads simply asked "cutting grass?"

Photo 2 Our amah, Foo Kwee Moi. How incredible it seems today that the R.A.F. would pay for us to have a servant!
