nfm24, did you find complete results in Singapore now ??
is it useful for finding results in Malaysia (Merdeka tournaments...) and some neighboring countries?

I know, I discovered this last week. I haven't yet had time to use the articles. Still, not all articles are fully available - only articles up to 1989 can be accessed remotely, and articles involving a third party news agency (e.g. Reuters) are unavailable in all years. But still, very useful.

If article has restricted access.
Click on "Table of Contents" underneath the article. Scroll down to the page the article is on then click on "Page View" on an article that is unrestricted. This brings up the page and you can move around the page and zoom in on the restricted article. If all the articles are restricted on that page click on an unrestricted article on the page before or after and then you can access the page you want (this is above the page thumbnail).

This won't work if every article in the paper is restricted.

should both Singapore Civilians (same as Singapore team??), All-Singapore results regard as Singapore NT results ??

All-Singapore had British players...
they were eligible in Merdeka tournaments but weren't eligible in Asian Games, Asian Cup

It depends how strict you want to be. In this period, many countries had foreigners in their national team because they played in the local league. E.g. Spain: Kubala, Puskas, etc.
So one interpretation is that the British players were based in Singapore, so they could play. But different competitions and countries have different rules...

My personal view: list all the games, but mention also the original label. Let the readers decide for themselves.
