October 2018 - Moni asbambo ndi asmai
Greetings to one and all, and by "all" it is nice to know that our Association includes not only former officers in the Force but family members and others, their partners, male and female and their children. In particular the latter, youngsters now in their middle age, who have contributed so much to the Association and to this website. It therefore leads on for me, with "Our Man" Christopher otherwise committed this month, to urge those of you with a story to tell, an anecdote or an event of interest to recount then please send it in for inclusion in our Chit-Chat page or elsewhere on the website.
Pictured on the left is the Nyasaland Police Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum, Croxall Rd, Alrewas, Burton-on-Trent DE13 7AR. Ken Wilkinson reminds us that it is now over seven years since this was laid and consecrated. Like many of us he is keen to revisit and revive thoughts about our time in Nyasaland, bearing in mind, as he points out, that this is the only tangible reminder of our presence in that country.
Unfortunately, but inevitably, we continue to lose members and I'm sure those who knew him are greatly saddened to hear of the death of Les Antrobus and, with the degenerative Alzheimer's disease, the manner of his passing.
Otherwise here in UK we are contunually bored by Brexit, does anyone have an answer to this enigma I wonder? Thank goodness it has been over-shadowed in the news this passing week by the European victory over the USA in golf's Ryder Cup - at least, if only in one thing, Europe is united!

It may well be Spring where you are but here in the UK we have entered Autumn with no sign of an Indian Summer - it's just wind and rain but nothing like the storms devastating other parts of the world. So, it has to be "Autumn Leaves" and Natalie Cole. ~ Click here to hear this chip off the old block.
