I remember him talking about the Whirlwinds but he never found them as far as i know.
No I was only a electrician at BKY on 204 sqdn but did a lot of hours in 745!Ecxiting time for a 17 year old!!Wish I had been an avid photgrapher then like yourself!Not much money about!!745 ended up on Catterick fire dump ,Sad!!
I went to Changi in the early 60's. My father was a Warrant Officer signals, who had joined the RAF in 1930 and this was the second time he'd been in Singapore.The first time in 1932, flying as an 'observer' on Hawker Horsley's. I was only 14 when I arrived at Changi mid 1961 and stayed, with a move to Seletar in 1963, until early 1964.
An enthusiastic aircraft spotter, living in a married quarter directly above the main western dispersal, I was lucky enough to freely prowl the 'pans' at Changi with my camera. I thus gathered a large collection (over 1000) photos of aircaft of all types, which I am only now scanning and reproducing.
I assume you weren't with 205 when flying WL745?

I would be very interested on face value. Wings Over Northumberland is not yet in a position to display any items, but we would happily take custody of any material with a view to placing it on loan to North East Aircraft Museum until such time as we can provide a suitable home. Please enquire further, or pass on my details. Many thanks for thinking of us.
