1)1946-1951 - 5 Years in SJAB

15th October, 1946..............
Mas. Chew Kok Aun (A pupil in the school) boosted the idea of establishing a First Aid society in the school. He bravely expressed his views and opinions in the school news bulletin. The first enrolment was launched from the 300 boarders and population of over 1500 pupils. Mr. Yeh Chin Yen, Chung Ling's strict but ever popular discipline teacher also played a decisive role in the foundation of the society. The motto of the society was "Be Prepared to Serve the Injured and to Save the Life". The divisional surgeon was Dr. Ooi Kee Wan. Lectures on first aid were quickly arranged and Mr. Looi Pah Weng, the secretary of the SJAB also the instructor of that division, gave the raw recruit a great deal of advice and training. The SJAB commissioner, Mr. Chuah Thean Choon, was overjoyed with the enthusiasm shown by Chung Ling boys.

Ambulance Brigade) and the SJAA (St. John Ambulance
Association) and there were indications of an impending split.]

absence of 6th to 10th divisions from the Brigade Parade. None
was given and therefore the withdrawal.]

Each member owned a portable first aid kit, which was fully equipped with medicine, and each one was efficient and very well-trained to help others.
