Which base in Singapore ?

During 1975 with the Britannias doing the Gurkha shuffle Kai Tak - Kathmandu we staged and night stopped at Singapore on the way to HK, what base would we have used with the Brit, please ?, oddly on the trips home we staged through Butterworth. thanks PH.

I believe Tengah was the only base that the RAF used in 1975. It was where the VC10's and Hercs operated through. I was there with the Nimrod MARDET deployment from Feb to Apr that year.
