Product Description

This is the latest book worthy of complementing the others which have been written on military aviation in Singapore—from the inception of the Royal Air Force in Seletar to its various iterations to today’s air defence force in Singapore. A special annex details the airplanes and insignia of the different flying squadrons of RAF Seletar. Chellapandi Chellaiyya also touches on the way of life in the 50s and 60s in RAF Seletar and Jalan Kayu and its parallel growth with the aviation world. Descriptions of the physical layout of the area then and now make for an interesting record of a slice of history in Singapore’s development. That aside, the daily life and struggles of the different income groups, their games and enjoyment, celebration of friends and festivals, all come alive in these pages.
