Chota was stationed in Singapore, we lived in Cowdrey Avenue in Serrangoon Garden Estate then moved to Blanford Drive. I went to school in Alexandra Junior School. We used to use the swimming pool in Seletar. In fact one of the guys there at the time sort of owes his life to me. I found him at the bottom of the deep end of the pool while diving for coins. The year I believe was 1956 or there abouts.
