Singapore and what it means to me..

 
As you know my lovely friends
send me cards from all over the world ,,

Singapore being one of the places , lovely to
receive cards but some can bring back memories.

What does
 
Singapore mean to me?
 
 
It makes me sad as it
was the last overseas place I was
ever with my dad.
 
We lived  there
 
1963 - 1966
 
when my dad was based at
 
Raf Tengah.
 
My dad at work !






After we returned to the UK , my dad was ill
and passed away 1967  at the age of 39 , day before his 40th Birthday .
Never forgotten , he was my life.

A very handsome man , and him being born in Malta :-) ,, I know you know the feeling ,, after all these years , the feelings have not gone away. Hope you are well , Lots of love xx

  4. Far too young for both of you. But you have been left with happy memories tinged with happiness. Some fathers leave behind tainted memories tinged with sadness (in the extreme). You have been blessed, Anne.

    I was born in Aden (RAF) and lived in Cyprus as a teenager. It made me who I am but this is the stage of life when I am certain I am who I want to be, living with the man who was made for me. It all comes out in the wash!

    Hi Pat - waving! Am back in the blogging fold - just need to write more posts!

  7. So sad to lose your dad, he was too young to die at 39, You will miss him as he missed out on so much, particularly when grandchildren arrive.
    He was a very good looking young man. Good that you have your photo's to cherish. The photo's of you are very good too!
    Is your Mama still alive?
    love Di.x
    I was 26 when my dad died, he had the joy of meeting two of his grandchildren so that was good.

  8. Your dad was handsome, and what great memories you must have built together as you traveled the world. The pictures of you when you were little look so like you now.

  11. What a lovely post Anne, very sad for you and he was so young. It is great though that his memory lives on and this is a great tribute to him. I am sure you found this post very emotional I know how I felt writing about my brother.

    You look just the same in your young photos as you do today, I would have recognised in any of these photos very easily. See you tomorrow :-) Take care Diane xox
