An interesting account of what it was like to be in the Colonial Service just before Independance!

We were in Mtwara at the time of the Mutiny and I remember my mother stocking up with tinned food,(which was all returned!).   We were listening to the BBC World News to get the latest on the event.

I was interested in Valerie's reply.  I see that you were at Mbeya for the same dates I was.  I remember Peter Wessels.
I was in Stanley house, and remember Anita Mull who used to live in Dar es Salaam I think. I played netball and received colours for it. A white ribbon with a large red N. In 1963 all the girls that were left where put in the same Dorm. I think it was originally the Red house's Dorm. I had a younger sister, Judith, who was the smallest girl in the school. I have attached two photos. One of us leaving Morogoro Sept 1961, and the other was taken I think at the end of 1961, My sister and I dressed as Irish Colleens for the end of year fancy dress party.
