    where?

    I was at Meroot Sq, Nee Soon garrison 1965-66. Came back from Borneo and then moved up to the RM Dieppe Barracks till Sep 68. Went out a boy/ came back a man. I went back with my new bride in Apr 1970-72. Loved every minute of it. happy days:thumb:

    You're getting carried away with these special effects.

    Very arty and attractive but easy to over do it.

    Showing your age, Sam.
    I believe Bugis Street is now part of the financial district.
    Dont know where the Kai Tais went to, maybe emigrated to Thailand to become Lady Boys?

    Was there in 1959, 1963 and 1968 (Royal Navy)
    It may have been the Kai Tais that set up the financial district with their earning as they were a lot better looking than the 100% women.

    Bungy. You should know that the proper name for a WAFU is 'Hairy Fairy' as quoted in the RN Bible (AP00001 &AFO's)

    tis true, but once that stopped getting a bite it had to change...and for some reason WAFU always touched a nerve...possibly due to hairy fairy being an accurate description so couldn't be seen as being derogatory....Honest chief...it was in daily dits and the dockard dandy so must be a gen dit

    I think you are an ex-matelot really, but please no more of the above, it's making me feel sea-sick in a nice sort of way.
