Message for Charles Kahama. Hi Charles if you are out there, salaam from your old friend poppy


Hi mikeWebster
The friend you were referring to is Robert Rugimbana. He and his brother Richard were good friends of my brother dimitri pappadimitriou. Through my brother i got to become friends with them both, and until now keep in touch with Richard.
Robert is in South Africa and Richard in Tanzania, as is my brother
Best wishes Poppy pappadimitriou


Sad to hear of the death of Bert Shankland, 26 January, a great hero to all of us especially on East African Safari Rally days when the duck-egg blue 404 was the iconic car to have alongside Joginder's Volvo ... ah, happy days!

Hi. I was a boarder at Arusha for 6 terms in 1959-60. It seemed repressive to me, in contrast to Iringa (St M & G) which I attended in 1961-2. I have few affectionate memories of it as an institution, though I made some good friends.

The only staff I recall with clarity were the two Joneses: BL (avuncular) and HG (fearsome). BL was a good man. I remember him spending what seemed like an hour kicking a rugby ball way up in the air for 10-year-old me to catch. Either he liked to practice his punting or he saw some illusory talent in me.

Here are some of the contemporaries I remember: Brian Rayment, Peter French, Caroline Miller, Richard Howe, Mark Fourie, Michael Carter, Peter Bird, Andy Hannah, Roger Haggerty, George Legnani, William & Carol Power, James, Claire & Rosemary Goodman, Karsten & Birgit Lund, Paolo Calagna, Michael Afentakis, Stelio Stylianou, Kedagh/Richard von Roretz, Jan van Enemis, Peter Owen-Pawson. I have lost touch with all but one - but would be delighted to hear from anyone who shared those days.
