Allan Thompson: RAF Changi Connection Part I
"I remember Stevie Loraine (singing with The Dukes in Singapore yesteryear) when I was at Changi in the mid-1960s and remember her with great affection.
I played bass for one night in 1964 with an RAF band called The Desperadoes at Fairey Point officers' club. They played guitar instrumentals. The gig was for the kids of RAF officers who had come out to Singapore from the UK for the holidays.
The other members of the band were Alan Fish on lead guitar, Colin Fish on rhythm guitar, and Bruce Sorley on drums.
Alan Fish now has his own band called Egypt (image: left) and plays in East Anglia regularly with them. He also played in The Groundhogs some years back. He plays bass rather than lead these days. Best wishes."
