Whilst looking through your great site I came across a couple of references to Moshi Trade School. I lived on the school between 1961-68 and have many memories of families that lived around us, Sunday tea at Kibo, safari trips etc.
My mother and father (Vera and Ronald Jackson) moved to Tanganika, as it was then, in 1958 firstly to Efunda and then to Moshi Trade School. My father taught the local boys electrical engineering. Having served in E. Africa during the war he fell in love with the place and was keen to emigrate when the opportunity arose. We returned to UK in late 1968.
There are two entries on your site from people there at the same time, one an friend of the family Les Brownlow and another entry from George Taylor who I must know but cant remember. They do have similar memories to me about curry peas and the book shop. If they or anyone from Moshi would like to get in touch please pass on my email address it would be great to hear from them.
I am sure there will be photos etc if you are interested or in an other information I might be able to help with.
Thanks again Dave for a great site. Unfortunately although I have tried to get back and will one day, so far I have only got as to Mombasa and Tsvo on a couple of occassions. Keep up the good work.

George & Audrey Taylor - Mbeya and Arusha Schools. I was at school with them at both. George may recall going halfterm to Jan van Rooyen's in West Kili.
Have been in and out of Tz over the years and now live not far from Ifunda on Ngwasi lake. Work in the Mbeya area and have had the opportunity of seeing the place - much the same but surrounds are built up. Rugby pitch is a railway station.
