What a find. I fast forwarded to Weybank chapters 7 and 8, describing Singapore and Bangkok in the 1960s and 70s. The descriptions of Seletar Air base, The Swimming Club and the Malay communist insurgency contain some unique and historical tidbits. Fascinating.

Great site.
Sorry not more on the Glasgow-Dublin ferries. We went to Greystones for our Summer BB camp on them. Almost lost my virginity on my last trip!
Yeah, great memories
Bob
