Singapore Engineer Regiment

I received this email in March 2018 so I started this page.  Roger is hopefully going to add whatever information he has, but maybe you can add some too?

Hi Gordon - Thank you for your e mail today - now on site. As explained my reason for access to The Sappers site is to record the existence of the Singapore Engineer Regiment 1939 - 54 (a British Army unit with some local Malays employed). My interest was started as my Dad who was RSM in 50/52. I tried to find out about the Regt ie Google and there was very little info. I now have the official achieve - very slim - but something least, plus some photo's. I would like to record something about this short lived Regt not necessarily because of my Dad but it seems wrong that all those Sappers, regular and national servicemen's contribution just be forgotten. There may just be the odd Sapper who was there still alive but unlikely. I would appreciate it if you would open a site under " Squadrons" - Singapore Engineer Regiment. Your time appreciated. All the best Roger Courtice.




I was based at Gillman barracks with the SER from April 1956 to September 1957. Also based on the same site was the Singapore District Engineer Squadron, and a troop of CRE.
Maybe I could answer some of your questions about that time
