Moni Aliyense ~ December 2019
How quickly the year has passed with Christmas now imminent! What are your memories of Christmas spent in Nyasaland? My own are of being invited by the late Les Renno, someone I had not met before, to spend Christmas day at his home in Blantyre and very enjoyable it was too. This kindness was the beginning of a long and happy friendship. On another occasion whilst "out in the sticks" with the PMF, in company with my 2i/c, was enjoying the hospitality of the District Commisioner. For those of you in Zomba I'm sure you will remember that whilst John was there it was 'Open House' and a well stocked fridge at the Wilkes residence.
Now, have you got a 2020 diary yet? If so, and it is possible for you to attend, please make a note that the NPA Reunion will be held at our usual venue in Coventry on Thursday 9th July 2020.
The Chit-Chat pages of the website continue to be popular and have you noticed the Chit Chat Index, which covers over 150 items from its commencement in 2014 to date. Recent additions include items on transport by Mary Brill and Alison McLellan, John McCracken's History of Malawi 1859 - 1956 and a career history of former Deputy Commissioner Jack Helliwell plus his picture in the "Police Days" Gallery.
Further, Norman Anderson has added his photograph collection to the Galleries and his career details to "Then and Now". A fine picture of Mick Mills inspecting the smart turn-out of his men at Ndirande has been added to the "Police Days Extra" Gallery and a visit to the Aeboretum by Boyd Pendennis and Jon Dennison in the "Memorial Dedication" gallery.
With that and a reminder that your memories and pictures are the making of this website you have my best wishes for Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

Musical Interlude
December - there's no alternative, it has to be seasonal and a choir probably most suitable. Carols from King's College, Cambridge, seems to fit the bill.
