I remenber it well. myself and Mick (surname forgotten)were on detatchmen for radio tests of equipment for 2 weeks,in 1968. we were in transit next to the arrivals and departure. The food in the mess was not bad, the swimming was great. But what a lot of frogs on a morning.
I did one of them in 1973, based in Sembawang, with some brown job Signals Regt. It was only supposed to have been for 2 weeks, for the trial between Singers and Gan, but the Captain i/c the detachment came from my neck of the woods, Aberdeenshire, so I wangled the whole 6 weeks there.
