hello Kieran, Swettenham Road in Taiping is now known as Jalan Istana Larut. Pic above shows the part of Swettenham Road closest to town. Right at the other end of Swettenham Road would be Tesco and Taiping Sentral which is a shopping complex. The British Military Hospital is still there but no longer serves as a hospital. It is now used by our armed forces for other purposes. It is in Kamunting near the Kamunting traffic lights. Any taxi driver in Taiping will be able to take you there. Tell the taxi driver you want to go to our Army Camp in Kamunting.

Hi Kayes
Many of quarters that used to house the British officers and their families have been pulled down. I wonder if Kieran could locate the house he lived in along Swettenham Road.
