Had a quick pint in The Pacific the other day & it has changed a lot since the Elliot boys were there. Not for the better!

just found this on my brothers p.c. As one of Vera's grand-daughters, I can safely say that although Charlie was a big part of my childhood he is definitely not one of Vera's boys.
Charlie played at the Pif every Sunday for many many years....originally as a duo with Ken and then as a solo artist. We are all very fond of Charlie and he was fond enough of Vera to play a few 'tunes' at her birthday bash in January this year. It was my Dad that you spoke to in Singapore :-)

Used to love going to this Pub. Always went to watch THE A TEAM play, brilliant gigs in the 80's.
As for Singapore, cracking run ashore, lived there for 6 months with the Navy. Was based in Orchard road at the ANA (Old Shereton) Hotel round the corner from the 4 floors of W**** in Tanglin in 2003 then lived up by the Terror Club in Sembawang, happy memories of the Nelson bar. Bugis is still going but as prev posts stated, pretty sanitised now.
Used to drink in The sportsmans Bar which was the Rangers supporters club in Orchard Road, Run by Harry and Sharon

CAMERAMAN.
Please be nice & call it Orchard Towers! I lived in Changi for many years & used to drink & play squash at the Terror Club. The official owner of the Nelson Bar (The Dutchman) was a mate of mine, even though he was usually asleep (after a hard day!)& his wife ran the place. Always called in for a Tiger with Sharon when in Orchard Road. Happy days & good memories.
I had always though that Phil Eliot was up in Thailand?

Sorry Tatey smile Orchard Towers. I used to love the Nelson, over 50 years of History written on the ceiling including my name and group name ( We were not attached to a ship at the time as we were a ships protection team). Every ship that visited from every country used to write their names on and it had never been decorated. The Mama at the bar with no teeth must have been over a hundred and she always used to grab the young AB's hands and freak them out LOL.
As for Sharon, what a wonderful person, never forgot a name, I returned a couple of years later and and she remembered everything about me. Got a cracking photo of her and Harry somewhere.

Lived in "K" Block in Terror. Excellent times. Also lived in Johore Bahru before the missus went back to UK and I brought the "Anchorite" back for scrapping. Used to love going to the Pacific when I was on leave, great characters and a great ale house.

Boogis St, to give it its proper name, has now ceased to exist. I remember as an 18 year old soldier being approached by a stunningly beautiful dark-skinned temptress who took me home for a drink. I was set up by my mates. I think you can guess the rest. Almost turned me gay!! I sh*t myself when we got to the nitty-gritty. Ran like a scared rabbit!!
