The Legasee website
The Legasee project may be of interest to RAFSA members, as well as our affiliated sites of RAF Changi and RAF Tengah.
It offers ex-service personnel an opportunity to put on record, via video recording, their recollections of service life in wartime.
It offers a professional recording system for those who would like to tell their story but perhaps don’t wish to embark on a written autobiography.
The website explains the whole thing very well, so why not visit the Legasee site soon?
There is no cost involved but then again, there is no remuneration either!
Recent issues of ‘Searchlight’ are available in PDF format here. Issues will be added as they become available.
The Association now has a Facebook group called ‘RAF Seletar & Tengah Associations’.
If you already have a Facebook account, you can sign in, look for the group and request membership. (This keeps it a members-only group.)
If you do not have an account, you can sign up for free.
Some people worry about privacy on Facebook. It is OK provided that you change the privace settings on your account. I would strongly suggest setting all of the items to friends only to start with. You can also limit what shows publicly to your name, which is quite a good idea.

An appeal from Syed Faiz Binyahya
"This is a picture of my Late Father, Abdul Karim Bin Ahmad, he served with the RAF Seletar Air Base from late 1950s to 1971 when he retired. From what I know he was attached to the engineering division.
When I was in my primary school days from 1968 to 1973, we received visits from Expat RAF colleagues of my dad to our house almost every other week, because of my mom's cooking. I also remember my time at the base swimming pool during the school holidays and also playing hockey with the guys on the base.
As our house was burned down, I lost all of dad's documents, awards and service medals I would appreciate any information from those who remember him."
