Brian Kenneth Toft

House: Nicholson
Year: 1959-1963

Memories have come flooding back after browsing the PoW web site, and after looking at Nicholson House photos on the site with me as the boxing champion in 1960.

  • Sports - Boxing, Rugby, Cricket, Hockey
  • Hobbies - Acting..literally....appeared at The Donovan Maule Theatre in The Mikado as "Koko". Also appeared with the English Theatre Company as the lead role of "Oliver" in the musical Oliver
  • Dearest friends were Adrian Grimwood, Bill Popplton, Richard Cox, and his brother (I think was) Martin Cox.
  • Remember David Thande, the first black pupil at the school in Nicholson House
  • Headmaster was Oliver Wigmore

    Since leaving School:
    Joined the Royal Navy and served 33 years; and left in 1995 as a Royal Naval Commander.
    Went to Hong Kong and became a club manager for the expatriate club, The LRC at 10 Old Peak Road.
    After 8 years, I then came to Singapore and am currently the General Manager of the famous Tanglin Club in Orchard Road.
    If you want to see a photo of me as I am now, see http://www.tanglinclub.org.sg/contact/gm_message.asp

    It would be great to be in touch with anyone who remembers me.
