Hi Mike, I remember you were only a few years old when your father (and the Rushbrookes) came to Arusha School. You had an endless amount of "baby sitters" on the playing fields in the afternoons. I remember your father took us for Rugby. Regards Des Bailey
Hi John Here is Agnes Minnery's address in1970. 18 Cairngorm Crescent Springhill, Barrhead Renfrewshire, Scotland
My sister Maureen recalls spending time with Agnes on their farm on the slopes of Mt Meru in the mid 1960s. If Ogaden Estate was on the slopes of Meru then I would guess that Agnes would be related to John Minnery (possible his daughter). Can Shaun confirm that the above address is the same as Col Minnery's forwarding address. If so, then further proof that Agnes is related to John. Now, how do to locate Agnes? Regards Des Bailey
Hi John My sister Maureen Bailey corresponded with Agnes Minnery until at least Nov 1970. Her address was Barrhead Scotland. I will forward it to you in a personal note. Agness attended Arusha School in the mid 1960s. Maureen can hopefully give you further information. Regards Des Bailey
Five Bailey siblings attended Arusha School as boarders Shirley 1952 - 1956 and later as a matron 1963 - 1965. Laurie 1954 - 1958 Richard 1958 - 1963 Desmond 1961 - 1965 Maureen 1963 - 1965
We lived on a farm at Oljoro just 12 miles outside of Arusha and therefore we were able to go home for the half term breaks. Over the years we took many pupils home with us for these breaks (those who lived too far away to go home). We certainly enjoyed the company and no doubt so did the friends.
The activities would have included swimming in the dam, fishing, shooting with a pellet gun, climbing Buffelkop (Oljoro - big hill adjacent to the farm) and general wandering around the farm.
Some of the school friends I remember who came out to the farm included: Ricky Ghaui Nickola Ghaui Clive Boddy Michael Perdikies Harris Perdikies Rudiger Vogs Paulette de Scossa Mitzie Cassarachis George Punter John Lately ? Trevor Goodwin Roy Fuller? There were many others.
This is the list as per the file attached to the header above.

My parents, Bill and Jean Bailey farmed on Oljoro from 1950 - 1967 which included poultry. (Prior to farming, my father was a Drill Foreman for the Department of Water Development - Water Boring Section - and therefore they moved to many parts of Tanganyika over the years. 1942 - 1950?) Back to the farm, I have vivid memories off collecting eggs, plucking fouls and doing the rounds delivering the produce door to door to customers in and around Arusha during the 1960s in our short wheel base Landrover. Many of the customers became good friends. Herewith attached is a list off approx. 300 surnames of those customers, together with their designations or place of work. Is your name amongst them? Where are they and their descendants now?
I too have vivid memories of the compulsory afternoon sleep after lunch, the Saturday night movies and having to wear a hat up to 3 o'clock in the afternoons. I have to admit that my sister Shirley was one of the matrons: (1963/4 ?) I got takkie from her as well, no special treatment for me, but I would get my revenge during the holidays, which made it worse for me during the term again. We lived on a farm 12 miles out of town at Oljoro. Des Bailey
Hi Mike I was at Arusha School (1961-65) (Standard 1- std 5) I remember when the first 3 Black students enrolled. They were Martin Galegi, Richard Rubanbane and his younger brother Robert Rubanbane (not sure of the spelling of both surnames). Robert is the one you are referring to. He was a victim of polio which affected his leg. I remember him very well. Martin Galegi was the fastest sprinter at the school and it was my brother Richard Bailey's goal to beat him, but he never managed. I do not remember you yet but we would have been in the same standard give or take a year. Regards Des Bailey
