Quote from: david saunders on 28 December, 2010, 06:35Hi Barry, Are u Jacks Son,currently in Botswana?  My Dad was the pilot in Chunya for WEstern Rift exploration. My brother Ken and i  both  attended Mbeya school. I remember visiting you, your sister and folks at Lake Rukwa. I remember swimming in the ponds inthe river and hippos and crocs in the lake.

Hi David, Just revisited the sight after many moons. Yep I'm Jack's son but unfortunately he died after a plane crash in 92. His plane. Of course, I remember you, your brother, your folks and your Dad's plane. I'm in Hong Kong these days and get back to Africa from time to time. Am a Grandpa 4 times over now. If you ever read this post get back to me at barry.bousfield@gmail.com. Cheers and best regards. Barry

Hi Hilly,

Just revisited this 'down memory lane' sight after about a year and great to see your post. Where do you live and what are you up to these days? I am a veterinary surgeon semi-retired and flit between Hong Kong and South Africa. My email address is barry.bousfield@gmail.com and would love to catch up. You were just a little 'smaller' than me but I remember you could swim like 'greased lightening'. Best regards, Barry

Hope these photos bring back some memories. I have got loads more which I could let people have.


Hi Mark.  This is amazing .  The photo of the hockey team refers :  The lad in the direct front is  Rolfe Bettison ( eldest brother )  sitting on the ground is Colin Bettison and the lad also in Stanley ( blue ) blond is a certain Barry Bousfield.
I Richard ( the blond haired googleizer )  was too young to be in the photo having arrived at Mbeya at the tender age of 6 years old with special DC permission as my brothers were already at the School.  A certaim item refers to Matron Bettison ( my Grandmother - Fathers side ) was the kind lady issuing out spoons of cod liver oil.

Would love to hear from any one who remebers the Bettison brothers.

Sorry I meant Stanley (not School House). I mixed up schools attended. 'Old Timers' I'm afraid!
Hi Mark, Gosh what a blast from the past! Great photos and I remember your Dad. Best Headmaster I ever had anywhere and Richard, I certainly remember the Bettisons! - my best mates - School House of course! Met up briefly with your bro Rolfe in South Africa some time back, and yes thanks for recognizing me! How is Colin these days? Anyway have just come across this Web sight and remembering some of the names and sights is quite mind blowing. Mark please post more! Best regards, Barry Bousfield
