My first order was always a double dark rum and coke and the ice bucket!

All the best,

Hi Jim, I spent many a night at the Straits with many a tale to tell 57/58 spent months at Connell House, I was the rock'n'roller with sparkly trou on stage for many a night being GeneVincent /Elvis/Fats/Eddie C with the opening number Īt's Saturday Night just been Paid 'probably quiet pissed but the band seemed to accept me. Used to "sing'at the Halfway House too
Challenged to a pissing competition by a white Russsian taxi-dancer in the gent's, she won, handful of slack and managed 14 feet.
Also at the request of RN Sparks started a massive brawl with the US Navy after being bought a beer, then tossing the empty over my shoulder before walking out past the doorman as the shore patrols rush in...Fun Days

Correction, Halfway Inn, 'twas the hangout of Naughty Service men's wives , out of bounds for their husbands as was Bugis St then.

Hi Jim: I only visited the Straits Cabaret once, I think when I was waiting for the Shell Tanker "Hinnites" in 1969. I seem to remember that the Mama-San was "married" to a Shell officer named Peter. Can't remember his other name.

What great memories these threads have brought back. I was with ICSN and we called there so often from 1950 berthed in Empire Docks (now reclaimed)and experienced all these rendezvous and activities. Years later when I returned for my land job company the changes were already evident and many were history. My wife enjoyed the shopping while I enjoyed the memories. Thanks for all your threads.
