Hi Ken,

No I'm not sure where it was. I was there from 1955 to 1967. My mum was on contract to the RAF as headmistress of the Infants school at RAF Tengah, where I was at juniors. I then went to Alexandra Grammar until 1963. When her contract changed due to the anticipated independence, i stopped getting a UK education and went to Raffles Institution for Boys. In 1967 mum and dad decided to come back because of the difficulties in working in Singapore with a British Passport. I have been back many times now, as I have an office out there and use it as an excuse to travel out to the Far East and Australia. It might be an idea to contact Lynne Copping, she's a mine of information. copping.lynne@gmail.com. I'm sure that she will be able to help.

Thanks Fred,
 I don't suppose you know where Alexandra Junior school was?
 and do they still exist?
When were you out there? and have you been back at all.
Thanks again

HI Ken,

It was probably Pasir Panjang school, which was near Gillman Barracks. There were two schools at Gillman, Alexandra Grammar and Alexandra Secondary Modern, but they were both for 11+ years.

Hi, I have just joined this site in the hope someone will be able to help me.
My dad was in the REME and worked at Jahore we lived at 2 Wilton close for the last few years before we came back to England,
we were in Singapore between 1955-1959.
The last school I went to was for junior's but I can't remember which one!!!!
I remember we used to go to Gilman swimming pool  and cub pack.
If any one can help me fill in some gaps I would be very grateful
thanks
 Ken
