Fond Memories

Coins - World | coinsbygary

Mokie's post entitled, "A New Challenge" reminds me of the many fond memories I have of serving in the United States Navy. His new collection based on the coinage of The Straits Settlement reminds me of Singapore and my visit there. According to Mokie's map, Singapore was once a part of The Straits Settlement. He is also quite correct about the large number of ships that pass in between the South China Sea and the Indian Ocean through the Strait of Malacca. Furthermore, a large percentage of those ships stop in Singapore because of its duty-free status.
