REUNION 2022 - CLICK FOR GALLERY PICTURES


      FEBRUARY 2023
Moni Nonse, Abamo ndi Amai,
Winter moves on and from UK we have had an unusual January when the weather has varied throughout the country. Scotland, for instance, has had one serious fall of snow followed by cold but sunny weather. Although cleared in the Lowlands the snow settled in the Highlands providing the best skiing in the Grampians for many a year. Oddly though, it's been colder in the south of the UK with sub-zero temperatures day afer day whereas in Scotland, for instance, it's been more times plus than minus. Worldwide, of course, our members have experienced something different. Vanessa, at the time of writing is in Greenland where she reported a heavy snowfall and where there is an average temperature of, say, minus 20C and stormy whereas with Alison, in Queensland down under, it may be plus 30C albeit it can be stormy there too.
The Last Hurrah ???
With it likely our final reunion in July and keen that this occasion is well supported it is pleasing to report that there has been a good response to the snailmail letter posted last month to those members who have been recent attenders. However there is still plenty of room for more of course so Click here if you haven't received a copy of this letter for, if you are not already decided, it would be good to see you there.
The World Wide Web!
There's a lot of "stuff" on the internet about Nyasaland/Malawi - be it factual data, travel, wild life or modern day tourism. There is also 'History' and the picture on the left - PMF drill, common to most of us as often an introduction to the Force - is taken from one of the best of these websites. 'Nyasaland/Malawi - Historical Moments' A Facebook Page for those with a continuing interest in the country covering a variety of aspects from pre-colonial days to early Independence and brings back so many memories for those of us who served there. Once logged in the page is open for your pictures, stories and memories, good or bad - all are welcome so post generously and share. Click here to continue
Chit-Chat Re-visited: The Indian Juggler
Who was the Police Officer, stationed at Karonga in 1961, who was detailed, presumably by an officer in the Federal Immigation Office, to board the Illala and check the residential status of a reported passenger - described as an "Indian juggler". Our man borrowed a bicycle and as instructed visited the ship lying offshore at Kambwe. Did he find the Indian juggler?
