Hi Chuck,

I know that your post was ages ago,but I can confirm that it was Dec 63.I was with my Dad at Oyster Bay in Dar under "House-Arrest" for 2-3 days. Most of the rebels were high on Pombe and when the British Commandos arrived vanished into the Bundu and not seen again.....We were thus released! Best Regards...Simon Watson.

Hi David,

We lived in Oyster Bay, off the Bagamoyo Road to the East between 1961-1967.Before that for 7 years in Tanga. Tanga was far better than Dar!! I was in Boarding School in the UK from 1961 so I used to fly back 3 times a year. Lighthouse Island definately and Somosas only at the Gymkhana Club and my mother's bridge parties...(boring!)

Hi David & Other Mbeyaites....

I hope you dont mind me entering YOUR school conversations,but 75% of what you experienced as regards your "Cammi", props and Dinky toys are the same. I was at Sao-Hill,(The Southern Highland's School) about 250 miles East of Mbeya,  between 1957-1960 and also lived in Dar. I was in Mbeya for my dad's local leave in 1959 and whilst there played cricket,tennis and golf. I also climbed Loleza Mountain. We stayed in a Quest House somewhere and with Dr.Currie and family.He may have been your school Doctor? .... Kwaheri. Simon.
