Mbeya School Uniform
Hi Richard, I was in he same house as you and I remember Colin Parkes (Pooky?) who was the fastest runner in our age group. We lived in Morogoro between 1959 and 1961 and went by bus with an overnight stop at The White Horse Hotel at Iringa (we alled it the Black Donkey Out) Great memories Regards Derek Bell

Hi John

Not sure who you are trying to contact but I've had nothing through.

Wow what a flood of memories. Our dates at Mbeya are much the same. Wallington, Miss Frost ( stand in the corner with hands on head ), David Sargent ( stayed with him the weekend before my 11+ ), Toynes David and Alan if memory right, Cubs, Scouts, Miss Harding so brave when we had a bus accident on the way to school.

I think I am going to have to write a memory brain dump of both Mbeya and St Micheal's and St George's Iringa.

Not far from each other as in Bakewell.

Amazing, I am the little boy looking out of the window of the bus just leaving Morogoro. I am Derek Bell (Wallington House) and went to Mbeya with my sister Susan between 1959 1961. We lived in Mwanza beforeMorogoro and Kigoma afterwards, leaving in 1963. I visited the school in 1985 and will put some photo's up on this site
