Thread: Old GEB camp at CCK

    Default Old GEB camp at CCK

    Heard from some quarters that this old camp (GEB aka Keat Hong Camp 1) along CCK Ave 1 will soon be demolished. Already camp 2 further up Ave 1 was cleared a couple of months ago. Camp 2 was used by mediacorp to filmed the movie Great world. Camp 1 was a colonial era army camp used by the British. There are still many old and unique buildings of that era still remaining. You will notice some of these buildings have very high ceiling and large windows with air slats along the walls to keep cool in our tropical climate. Others are dome shape. Not to mention are the many old trees that may soon go the way of the railway.

    Camp 2 is demolished. Camp 1 is still intact but not for another 6-12 months. Currently, there is a private driving school conducting classes. Have seen public in there.

    I miss the days when we will roll pass Chao Chu Kang Avenue 1 in a convoy of M113s early in the morning and literally shaking residents in their houses awake at 0400 hours.
