In the UK, the late May weather brought a good amount of sunny days and the promise of Summer which for meteorology commences on the 1st June. In sporting circles worldwide, there is a variety of major events including the FA Cup final on 3rd June at Wembley and in Cricket the ICC World Test Championship Final. On the 10th June Motor Racing has the Le Mans 24 hours. On 15th June it is the US Open Golf championship and on the 16th there is the Ashes 1st Cricket Test. I think that is plenty to be getting on with!
Boyd Pendennis - RIP
Last month we had the very sad news that Boyd had passed on, aged 94 following a long illess. He was indeed one of the 'greats' who gave long and distinguished service in the force and later in the Malawi Police with strong support of the Association from its inception and he was a regular at our Reunions. He will always be remembered for his integrity, genial personality and sense of humour. Further details can be found in Chit-Chat 2023.
Reunion – 13th July – Final Date for Bookings
I would be delighted to receive further bookings by the 20th June at the latest to bolster what should be our largest attendance in many years.
PLEASE BOOK FOR THIS FINAL REUNION!
Visit to the NP Memorial at the Arboretum
I have not visited our memorial since its dedication in 2011 and had to
cancel a planned visit last year. However my wife and myself are now very much looking forward to visiting the Arboretum by coach on 6th June and hopefully will post photos next month.
(Two years ago Allan and Ronelle Bean kindly visited the Memorial at my request after the 10th anniversary of its dedication)
Life and Work in Nyasaland
This month we have an extract from 'An Administrative Officer's Apprenticeship' by Colin Baker. Having been posted from Chingale to Blantyre he speaks of the assistance he got from a variety of friends and colleagues including former Nyasaland Police Officer Alan Tate. Click to read.
Chit-Chat Revisited (2018) ~ Baby on board|
Webmaster's niece, Linda Russell (nee Rankine), was resident in Nyasaland as a child when her father was employed in Barclays Bank, Limbe. She has recently (July 2018) returned for a visit with her daughter Pippi and both thoroughly enjoyed their time there. Pippi, a medical student, was keen to experience some aspects of the life of the ordinary villager and here she is seen trying the time honoured practice of baby transportation. What a delight it is to see the reaction of the ladies gathered there.

Khalani Bwino - Stay Safe
1st June 2023
The name came from World War one, when Captain Edmund Rhoades instigated the very first naval action of the war on Lake Nyasa (14th August 1914) commanding the SS Gwendolyn by attacking the German vessel Hermann von Wissman which was up on a slipway. The Germans were unaware that the war had even broken out.
