My Name is Sheila Speed. From 1948 to 1961 my Grand Father (William Angus Speed) worked in the colonial civil service - initially in the Enemy Property section and later in the Lands and Survey department in Tanga, Tanganyika.
He was much respected and admired for his honesty and integrity. When he died in 1961 the European Community raised funds for memorial gates at the Anglican Church in Arusha post his death. No one in my family has returned to Arusha since 1961 and my Father, also named William Angus Speed, has asked me if I could visit Arusha when I come to Africa for my next business trip in the near future.
I am looking for information of a contact person, preferably from the Anglican Church where the memorial gates are. Can you please help me?
In sincere appreciation for your assistance.
