This website is here to help keep alive the memories of those many service personnel and others lucky enough to have served at RAF Seletar Singapore which was an active RAF station from 1928 through to 1971 (but for a couple of years in WWII during the occupation by the Japanese).
Membership is open to all Service and civilian personnel, including their families and relatives, who served at Seletar, Tengah, and any associated units on the Island of Singapore. This includes past and present personnel of the Singapore Armed Forces.
Sample back numbers of the newsletter ‘Searchlight’ are available here in PDF format.
RAF Seletar has an very colourful history laying claim to many fascinating events, visited by Royals, celebrities and global adventurers in its long years of operation. The RAF Seletar Association was formed in 1997 with the aim of bringing together anyone who has been associated with the Singapore RAF base in any capacity service or civilian so that they can renew old friendships and hopefully make new ones. If you're not a member yet - join! Please contact Dave Taylor for membership enquiries
Where are all those people who were based at Seletar during the 1960s up to 1971? We would love to hear from you; this is a great way to catch up with old chums.
Keep an eye on the Memories page too. Please help that collection grow by contributing your own memories.
Please keep an eye on the News Page
We were all there and we all have a story or three that keeps the memory of Seletar alive in the old grey matter! Want to share your story here? Please!
The new website, apart from carrying more up-to-date information about the association, will carry more interesting stuff about our beloved base. So if you have some experiences or events that went before that you saw, experienced and think it might be worth including - let me have it - please.
Please can you rummage through your shoe boxes and drawers and albums and dig out those old black & white (and colour!) prints of shots you took when you were there?
Please let us have copies of any picture you think we might use on the site. The Contact page has details of how to send them.
Better still, please scan them (or have them scanned) and get them copied to a CD or, if you choose, email them to me (Dave Taylor).
Please scan at high resolution (600 dpi is good).
Mike Rees sent his pictures and a story and they are now published here.
They say every picture has a story - please let me have a few lines about the pics you send so when the images appear on the website people will know what was going on - any naughty stuff will of course be published: name & address withheld!
Special mention: The banner for the site is a montage and includes the image of Seletar's last Sunderland pictured with an Air Sea Rescue launch in 1965 - original photograph by Brian Randall
