You missed my father in law by a couple of years. :-)

He did his NS there from the end of 1945 to 1948 having been dragged kicking and screaming into the Service. He chose to become a Medical Orderly

As far as I can remember, he spent time in Changi while the Japenese POW's were there. Later he was posted out into the Jungle where he and one other Oderly were more or less autominous. Beside the minor injuries, he had to search of lying water were the Mosquito sources of Malaria could breed. When he had to treat the MO for leg injuries (he'd run his vehicle off the road) the MO arranged for a radio to be salvaged from one of the aircraft so they had some form of enertainment

You need to post on Forces reunited...........

Or look to see whether this man is a member of GR.............he can't see your post if he isn't

You can look for his name in 'search all trees' if you know when and where he was born
