I found this site by accident and was very excited to see the mysterious place my dad was stationed at, and from which I still have the shell with a special message I have treasured over the years. Hopefully someone out there remembers my dad, Dickie Bird, of course a very common name, although his real name was actually Frederick. I don't know his rank at the time, but he worked on airframes, I believe. Sadly he died in 1979 while with the RAF in Singapore and at that time was a Chief Tech.
