This pub used to be run by Vera, the mum of Charlie Landsborough the country and western singer. A great alehouse with a piano in the back room.

Billed himself as the landlady's son on a radio interview over here, he was appearing at Skeggy. He told some good dits about the Pacific too. I may have misheard him but don't think so. It was so long ago I need some reminders of exactly what was what and who was who, so always grateful for a heads up. Cheers Para

It gets more intriguing. Charlie comes across well in his interviews but never been to see him sing since the Pacific about 30 odd years ago. He might have just been talking about Vera as the landlady.

I met one of the Elliot brothers in Singapore of all places in about 1978, when we were both working out there.

No, it was actually in the bogs at 392 bar when it was at # 392 Orchard Road & Phil said "where are you from mate" & I replied "not far from you by the sound of it" I think Phil was with McDermott then. Shame about Bugis Street closing, that was the start of the sterilisation of Singers!!

Ah, Singers. Wot a run ashore! Don't ask paranoidballoon about falling down a mongoose drain though. Bugis St isn't actually closed, a mate of mine was down there last year, but it is certainly sanitised, not like it used to be with the Brit squaddies and matelots down there giving it rooty-toot. Like they say, "never go back it aint the same."

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!!
