Where is Poon?


Does anyone know the whereabouts of Poon,pictured in the above picture?

My dad worked with Poon at KD Malaya within the Naval Base at Sembawang in Singapore between 1965 and 1968. I've tried tracking Poon down but the trouble is that 'Poon' was probably his nickname.My dad remembers that his name was unpronouncably so he got the nickname from a Chinese racing driver of the time who was called Albert Poon. I know his wife was called Kim and his son was called William and that they lived at 2 Bukit Pasoh Road,Singapore 2.He visited us once when we lived at Devonport in Plymouth but we lost touch when we moved house.One of my dad's friends thought that his proper name was 'Poon Ah Boon' but this isn't unpronouncable so could be a mistake. He signed Christmas cards from his family 'from Poon,Poon and Poon!'.

I've mentioned him in both my books,which are sold in Singapore, and also in an article about ex-brats in the Straits Times.

If anyone knows of his whereabouts,I would love to hear from you(and so would my dad!).
