"To be a Scholar, a Sportsman and a Gentleman" is the motto of the Victoria Institution, a high-achieving English school for boys in Malaysia, and also one of the oldest.

It dates back, in fact, to 1893 and boasts an illustrious history of academic and sporting excellence. Traditional principles and ideals are still maintained there and the pristine, white buildings have been impeccably preserved and restored - including those that were used by the Japanese during the World War II occupation as administration buildings.

It is said that the execution of war prisoners was carried out here, and students have described hearing chains rattling, a platoon marching and horrible cries during the night.

The shadow of a hanged man suspended from a tree in the courtyard is said to be visible on occasion, and some boys have even claimed to have been woken by a ghostly figure standing over their beds, staring at them.

I had the privilege of being a pilot of 122 Squadron RAF in Normandy and England in 1944/45 when one of your more illustious pre-war students, Cyril (Jimmy) Talalla was my flight commander and later a good friend. For the first time in several years I visited your website yesterday and read a contribution from "Snow" Davis, an Australian who was a fellow P-51 pilot with Jimmy and myself. I would very much like to establish contact with Snowie (as we called him) Davis and would appreciate it if you could provide me with his email address, or, failing that, his home address. Incidentally, I was stationed in KL from about November 1945 until June 1946, leaving as a flight commander of 136 Squadron. During that period I was privileged to know all of the surviving Talalla family and formed a rather special relationship with Banjamin, the famiy patriach, who treated me like a son.

Hi Victor - Where did you see the comment from Snow? If you leave a comment after his he'll be notified, which might be the easiest way for you to establish contact. Feel free to send me a link to the page you found his comment on to me and I might be able to be more helpful:

Hi Victor,

Would you happen to also be the Victor Fenn that started an advertising agency in 1952? If so would you be able to contact me as I'd really like to hear a little bit more about you and your life. Thanks Sean.
