Jambo Rafiki, Habari?
What a wonderful trip down memory lane I've had since discovering your website.
My sister Eugenia (Jeannie) Sharp and I attended Arusha School in 1956 and 1957.
We knew the Davis family well as my dad, William Robert Sharp, also worked at Karanga Prisons Moshi as a Prison Officer. We used to go round with Mary and Martin Davis a lot.
I remember Princess Margaret's visit. They built a wooden archway in the town of Arusha to welcome her. She came to the school in the evening of her visit wearing a lovely yellow evening dress.
I wonder where some of my friends from Arusha are now - Charlotte Hutchinson, Marilyn Dingwall to name but two.
It would be nice to hear from anyone who remembers me.
