How absolutely amazing to stumble upon your web site and also discovering that my sister has added my parents names!
I typed in George Rushby's book 'The Hunter is death' because I borrowed it from my father many years ago and have now lost it in the many moves I have had.It was a rather cherished book because we lived in Georges old house in Lupembe. We moved there in 1958.
I went to Mbeya School for all of one term in 1958 and was desperatly unhappy. I wonder wether anyone remembers me wetting my knickers because the teacher wouldn't heed my desperatly extended arm, and then to add insult to injury she put my knickers out in the sun outside the classroom with name tape fully visible…tis the only time in my life I wished the ground would open up and swallow me !
Coming back to the book I would be most grateful if you could tell me where I might find another copy.
Also if you could put me in touch with Birgit Lund and Rosie Goodman (Peacock) I would be thrilled as I went to the convent in Nairobi with them.
A great website well done.

I came across your site. I seem to recognise a lot of names. Would appreciate adding mine.
Parents tea farmers near Lupembe. Contact with anyone who might know my family? Peter and Eileen Roe. Sisters went to Arusha school 1959 then on to Nairobi.
So many memories to share. Appreciate a reply.
