I would like to find my first friend, special because she was my first, after a lonely childhood. Our parents were both in the RAF and posted to Singapore in 1959 - 1962. I think her father was an officer, surname MOLD. His daughter's name, my friend, was KATHRYN MOLD. We both attended CHANGI GRAMMAR SCHOOL from 1960 until we returned to UK in 1962. We were both 11 when we met and I was known as IRENE CALLENDER. My father was Sergeant Callender. It is not much to go on - Can you help? Thank you - you
