Among his friends from the Tanzanian days, whose names I remember, are
Olivia Duncan who farmed and indeed may still be, in Oldiani at Ben Du Estate.
I remember, Jock and Cise Taylor,
Mr and Mrs Koch who farmed Silverdale Estate at Weru Weru, next to us,
Bill and Joan Forder, we loved their swimming pool at there house in Moshi.
They were very kind to us and Jackie Forder, their daughter is now married to Seamus Brice Bennet and they own and run and Marangu Hotel in Moshi.
I remember Spookie Speight from Oldiani, Sidney and Marisha Meyer from Arusha,
Polly Bloom, who was a man so must have been a nick name,
Doug and Beryl Haig, farmers at Oldiani who went on to run Lodges and may still do!
Ken and Lorna Pugh I knew in the UK but Ken was a surveyor and I believe surveyed the Oldiani farms in the 50's early 60's.
I remember Vic and Joyce Stuchsbury, I think Vic was an Accountant in Tanzania but we met many times in the UK after they left and the Col visited them.
From West Kilimanjaro i remember the names of Paddy Fox, Michael Wood, the Flying Dr and Piet Hugo.
