Well gentlemen I note a similarity among these olongapo pictures, I suspect they were all taken very early in the evening !! from memory cameras tended to have been sold, swopped or just lost by an hour into the run !! or if in the village confiscated by a bouncer. I havn't seen many photos of Olongapo before keep them comming !!
Fredtubb, I also have still got my gold divers badge !! if you ever make it to a reunion, let me know and we can sew them on our blazer cuff !! as you say we worked for them! Jack stay swimming and trying to chop through a chain link with a hammer and chisel, and oh yes I remember operation awarkwards. unfortunatly my latter days were spent in Pompy, and no ban yans there ! spent time looking for lost outboard motors in pompy harbour, black silt cold water and midshipman pleading for us to find it as he was going to have to pay for it if we didn't !! great days,  just remind me how much extra pay did we get if we got our diving minutes in? I still have my log though !!

Stan
It was 4 bob a day diving pay. And we had to log 120 minites a quarter to qualify.
If you remember it wasnt always easy to get your chief to let you off, just because he wanted some chipping and painting done. One time i was cribbing to the chief, and he said "no you cant swan off work just to enjoy your self" Lt Selwood the ships DDO was stood with our boss and he heard. He said chief if thats the case if all my ships deeps have to work there parts of ship, i sudjest you tie that tin of non-skid paint round your neck and get down there and do my required necklace seach. Chief went red, i went diving and i kept out of his way for days.
yes that would be great to sew our badges on our shirts lol

Sembawang gate, not enough space here to tell all the tales, but just out of shot was the bar that stay open late selling fried prawns in cones of newspaper,and Nasi Goring? (obviously spelled wrong), but it was great, coming back to the dockyard after a run in Singers, off the bus then pooling all the 5 and 10 cents we had left and haggling with the little chap who had the charcoal and wok, probably be battered to death by the health and safty loons now, but I never new anyone who complained of anything after dining there, mind you at 17 I could (and did) eat anything !! Saw some great rioting just outside this gate I think in 64 ? can't remember who was bashing who, but I do remember the Little police men forming a line with little wicker shields and weighted sticks and clearing the road double quick time, we could learn a lot today from those lads.
I found a web someone put up under Terror barracks worth a look
   Keep happy
