Bingalau, I know what you mean. When I was in Singapore (RN) we never even got out of the dockyard gate. It was staight to the Dockyard canteen where the Tiger Tops never stopped flowing and I don't know how many times we were:
pj123. Respectfully suggest that you did in fact get out of the dockyard, because HMS Terror was not inside the dockyard. (I think you are talking about the Armada canteen in HMS Terror). There was no canteen inside the dockyard. Both the dockyard and HMS Terror were however inside the Naval base. But as you state that was a good run ashore without really going anywhere.
