“It is only when I see the expanse of the harbour in my photo, I shudder to think of those Chinese Sampan owners who rowed us back in the pitch dark after a night in Singapore. Despite a vicious tide they always managed to get us back safely to Fort Siloso. Their rewards were not very good, I think we paid them a very small percentage of the Malayan Dollar which was 2/4d (Two Shillings & four pence) at that time” - Harold Dursley.
