An email from Simon Light ( or phone 00-39-340-8513578)

"Does anyone remember or know anything about Robert Light? As far as I know, which is not much, he was a seargent, perhaps a snowdrop, with the RAF regiment. He would have been posted in Penang at least twice. The first time he was there, perhaps around 1963-64, he met and married his wife, Chuah Poh Gim. Years later, in 1969, I was born in the Military Hospital in Changi, Singapore. The reason why I ask is that I am his youngest son, and about Robert Light, and his life in Penang with the Air Force, I know absolutely nothing. Robert died in 1973, and I think my mother was so utterly devastated by this, that she could not look back on those years without great pain, so she never talked about him, them or Penang. I think this is because that period of their lives, the RAF years in Penang, was perhaps some of the best years of their lives. There seems to have been something very special in the place, in the life there that captured their hearts, and indeed the hearts of many of the contributors to this column, or at least that is how I always imagined it. So if anyone has any information about the man Sgt. Robert Light, his life out in Penang, anecdotes, friends, colleagues, anything, please let me know. Thanks".
