Some photos of 1960’s Bukit Gombak and Bukit Panjang
Today, I would like to share with you some rarely-seen photos of Bukit Gombak and Bukit Panjang taken in the 1960’s. These images were sent to me by Gordon Carle quite some time ago. But I had been hesitant to post them on this blog for 2 reasons:
1) Bt Gombak is a highly sensitive military area.
2) I do not have any stories of these 2 places to share with readers. Apart from a meeting at the Air Logistics Unit in the 1980’s when I was working with the National Productivity Board, I have never set foot in Bukit Gombak.
Anyway, these photos are more that 4 decades old, so here they are. Hope readers can add some of their own stories.
The first 3 are of Bukit Gombak, no. 2 being from Whirlwind helicopter.
These last 6 are simply views from Bukit Gombak (probably).
