LAST BUT NOT LEAST ~ REUNION 2023 - CLICK FOR GALLERY PICTURES


Having our leading man, Ken, no longer available for his input to all association matters is a set back and a recognition, of course, of our depleting membership of former serving officers. However, with the support of our general membership, which remains quite good, we will continue with this website to keep a degree of Nyasalander contact where possible. No doubt many were able to view the very impressive Thanksgiving Service for Ken on-line and it was good that, at least, Nypol member Trish Thacker was able to attend in person to represent us all.
This month, from Volume 3 of Colin Baker's books, Ron Morgan remembers his brother, Nypol member Ian Morgan.

Matey's Memoirs - In chapters three, four and five, of his latest proposed book Robin Martin writes of the time he spent in the Nyasaland Police. Courtesy of his daughter, Anne Blackman, these chapters have been made available to us and Part 3 of Chapter 3 can now be viewed on the Items of Interest page.
Chit-Chat Re-visited (2019) ~ Do you remember 'Jack' Helliwell?
Recent publications coming to light remind us of John Meade Helliwell CPM QPM, Deputy Commissioner of Police in Nyasaland 1953-1958. For those of us who met him will recall a very astute and correct senior officer with a reputation as an organiser. A brief career summary has been put together from his time as a trooper in the BSAP in 1932 through his service in Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland to his retirement in South Africa. Further, in addition, a copy of a partial draft for an article to appear in the Police Magazine, by Sheila Carteret Robinson, has become available.

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
