Came across your very interesting website and wondered if anyone knows or remembers any of the Palmer-Wilson family.
I believe my father Clary, a Proffessional Hunter 1930-1960ish ,was based at Arusha and my half-brothers Michael and Richard went to Arusha school. I would be most grateful for any information or snippets concerning them.
Thank you in advance and keep up the good work. Robert.

Hi Gaynor, (presumable Gaynor Watkins)
I am searching for information concerning my father Clary Palmer-Wilson. My half-brothers Mike, Richard and Donald who may have gone to Arusha school at about the time you were there. I would be very most interested and grateful if you knew them or of someone who did and was willing to send me any information.

My father was a hunting partner of Clary's and lived in the area and hunted with him for 11 years. We have a lot of photos, old 8mm movies and info if you are interested. I was born there in 1956. Also interested in this topic. Now live in New Zealand.

I was a boy pilot with Tim Air Charters in Dar-es-Salaam in 1969-1971 and spent a great deal of time flying tourists / hunting clients into Clarys camp in the Selous Game Reserve .
Fond memories indeed , especially when the Apollo 12 astronauts Bean , Cooper and Conrad managed to escape the worlds press on their world tour in Air Force 2 , and had a few happy days at the camp .
Clary always treated us pilots like sons , and we were pleased when Richard got his commercial pilots licence.
Lost track of them all in the 70s when I returned to Kenya which was my home from childhood to my 28th year .

I saw this fantastic website and all the communications between former schoolmates and families/friends looking for each other. I would like to get in touch with Robert Palmer-Wilson, one of my half-brothers. That way I can update him on some things. In case other friends are open to getting in touch, a little background on the Palmer-Wilson clan! I went to school in both Kongwa School and St. Michaels & St. Georges in Iringa.Would like very much to get in touch with old mates! I moved to Alaska in 1964 - worked in Africa part of each year since then.
For Robert Palmer-Wilson - last time I visited with you was in London about 1966. Our father, Clary Palmer-Wilson moved to the USA in 1985. He passed away living with me in 1996. Donald Palmer-Wilson, too moved to the USA and he passed away about 12 yrs. Ago. If you want to email me, we can be in touch again and I can fill you in on the rest of the clan. I am in London several times a year for Board meetings and in East Africa once or twice a year for activities - so we can meet easily.
