Mok Ly Yng on “Horsburgh Lighthouse: 160th anniversary” (Sat 15 Oct 2011)

Thomson left Singapore on 1 Sep 1853 (Thu) on the Ganges bound for Galle in Ceylon. He returned to Singapore on 3 Nov 1854 (Fri) on the Singapore from Galle. He was away for 1 year, 2 months and 2 days, just a few weeks short of 15 months. He claimed for and presumably received his half-pay upon his return to Singapore. He visited his hometown during his leave in 1854. He also had a town map of Singapore published in London in 1854. This is a rarely known map today as the reprinted copy in existence in the Singapore museum and library does not have the place of publication nor Thomson’s name printed on it.
