My interest in German East African coins and bank notes issued von Lettow-Vorbeck circa 1916 arises from my childhood.
I was born and raised in Tanzania (formerly known as Tanzania and German East Africa prior to the end of World War One. I grew up in the the small town of Iringa in the Southern Highlands of Tanganyika - flying to school in South Africa in the early 1960s as education in East Africa was limited.
