Moni, moniri nonse ~ October 2020
The ongoing effects of the Covid pandemic continue with the reintroduction of various restrictions and further lockdowns in different parts of the UK. No doubt the lives of all our members have bee affected in varying and in some cases drastic ways. Our thoughts are with those who may have been particularly badly affected.
Whilst we cannot of course know the situation that will exist next year, I have noticed that the NRP Association have fixed a provisional date for their 2021 Reunion. I have decided to follow suit and have arranged for our usual venue Holiday Inn Coventry to pencil in Thursday 15th July 2021 for our Association Reunion. Please note this date!
This month extracted from Volume 1 of Colin Baker's books 'Expatriate Experience of Life and Work in Nyasaland' (with kind permission of Mpemba Books, owners of the copyright) is Terry Young's contribution: 'A Policman's Lot'.

John Savage (1936-2020) ~ RIP
Sadly I have to report the passing last month (September) of John Savage after a short illness. He was 83, resident in London and owned his own specialised business in the motor trade. He joined the Nyasaland Police in June 1961 and continued service after Independence. On behalf of all members I have passed on our condolences to his wife Veronica.

I have enjoyed telepehone contact with some thirty of our members during the past month and whereas many of us are at that age now where our general health may not be what it was we all seem to be coping well with the current pandemic and associated regulations. However, Mary Brill, visiting her son for a few weeks in Scotland for Christmas 2019 and the New Year, found that due to these rules plus associated advice she was unable to get back home to Dorset until September 2020!
Chit-Chat Revisited: Detached Duties
Pictured left is J.D.C. (Jeff) York CPM, whose first appointment in Nyasaland was in 1949 following nine years in the BSAP and who, in 1956, was OC the Police Mobile Force in Zomba. However, in was that year, in Northern Rhodesia, in response to a series of strikes throughout the Copperbelt that the government there declared a state of emergency, arresting and banishing the leaders of the African Miners Union. Being part of the then Federation a detachment of the PMF was deployed to the area to assist the local force.   Click here for more

Very Best Wishes ~ Ken Wilkinson

Musical Interlude
Here in the UK the 2020 harvest should now be safely gathered in but what a fine sight was that field of barley in the patchwork landscape of the countryside. So, what better than a return to Celtc Woman and their version of "Fields of Gold".
