MAY 2024:
So, here in the UK it’s into the final month of Spring when one can only be optimistic that we shall see more of the sun than we did last month when it was blocked out by extensive cloud cover. Oddly enough it was this aspect which led folk to complain of the cold when, in fact, the overall temperature of this last April was a tad above that of the aversge!
Chit-Chat Re-visited (2014) - John Peskett
Do you remember John? He joined in Feb 1960 and was very cheerful man of pleasant nature. Did you know he was a prisoner of the North Koreans? A Royal Marine he was operating with the SBS behind the lines when, in 1951, he was captured with four other marines. They were taken to the bomb shattered town of Wonsan where they were in danger of being attacked by the local populace. On the way John suffered serious dysentery and was left in a village with one guard and lodging with a family of two women and two children. He was generally well treated there but once better he underwent the usual lengthy interrogation, placed in a hole and endured the appalling conditions meted out to all the prisoners at that time.
How did he end up in this unfortunate predicament?

FRIENDS OF MALAWI ASSOCIATION

With the end of our annual reunions and the much enjoyed personal contacts made, is it possible that FOMA offers a possible alternative? This Association was formed in 1969 to foster friendship, goodwill and understanding between the people of UK and the people of Malawi. A number of our members have joined and membership is recommended. Events this year included the Spring Meeting, which was a virtual Google (Zoom) Meet, on Saturday 14th April. The Annual Re-union in Burley in the New Forest is on Sunday May 19th. For further details visit the
FOMA website - forthcoming events or contact the secretary at secretary@foma.org.uk
