Moni Nonse, Abambo ndi Amai,
My message this month is to repeat that after the Reunion in July I was asked if it amounted to the end of the Association and I affirmed that it was not.This excellent website remains by far the best of comparable Colonial Police sites, being always kept up to date and full of interest. Both Webmaster, Terry Young, and myself are committed to ensuring that it continues. For this, of course, we need your continuing support by way of regular contact - be it by email, snailmail or telephone with photographs and written material always very welcome.
At our last reunion in July, those of you who were there will recall that I gave the welcome address and the toast to "Absent and Departed" members. However, for general information I put together a full report of the occasion and have decided to retain it on the website as part of our history.

Chit-Chat (2019) Revisited ~ Colin Baker at the National Memorial Arboretum|
The Association was privileged that Colin Baker was present and gave the address at the ceremony for the laying of the Memorial Stone at the National Arboretum, Lichfield, on 21st July 2011. In his speech he outlined the formation of the Nyasaland Police, its organisation and staffing from the early days through the colonial years to independence in 1963. Rather than a record of mere factual detail his talk was peppered with interesting and amusing anecdotes experienced by our members over the years bringing back so many memories to those present.

Webmaster - June 2019
This month from Volume 2 of Colin Baker's books 'Expatriate Experience of Life and Work in Nyasaland' (with kind permission of Mpemba Books) we have the article written by Christopher Bean - "Police Service in Kasungu" (which includes many of his hunting escapades).
