Moni nonse ~ November 2020
The increasing number of changes in life brought about by the Covid restrictions in the UK and in many parts of the world continue. Our thoughts must be for all who are badly affected in so many differing ways and situations. The end of October saw the finish of British Summertime in UK and the putting back of our clocks. So November begins our Winter – unfortunately for the first time a Covid one which is not the happiest prospect but it is important to try to remain as positive as possible in the circumstances we face.
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 Eric Bult's contribution: 'The Search Party'.

Remember those occasions when we became the 'mozzie's favourite café' - nights on duty spent out in the bush in particular. Well, following my request last month for information on that green medical booklet issued to us all, I was very grateful to receive a copy from Mick Thacker of "Hints for the Preservation of Health in Tropical Countries". It gives comprehensive details of how best to counter this vicious beast as well as much advice about the various health problems common to life in the tropics. The full copy will appear on this website in due course - how will it measure up to today's health concerns?
Chit-Chat Revisited - In the News
British Prime Minister, Harold Macmillan, undertook a widespread visit to Africa in early 1960 arriving in Nyasaland on Monday 25th January. It was here that rather a hostile reception had been prepared for him by several hundred Africans carrying placards and shouting slogans generally calling for the release of Dr Banda from detention - the State of Emergency still being in force at the time. So, although during his visit there were some clashes with the police at Chileka and Blantyre these were by no means so serious as Press reports would suggest.

Musical Interlude
With UK now into the first throes of Winter we see the last of the pictuesue autumnal colours with the fallen leaves decorating our gardens, parks and streets. So, it has to be a return to Matt Monro and "Autumn Leaves".
