West Kili Country Club certainly did exist, though I can't tell you about the speech made by Nyerere as I was only there in 65. The club was used mainly by the farming community, and we used to meet up there most weekends ofr a drink or a games of tennis.

I, too, remember vaguely visiting the hotel in the early 50's with my mother Jean Sowerby. I also remember our Iringa-Mbeya school bus picking up Morag Cormack at Chimala - at least I think it was Morag? Great pics.

Hello, John

My name is Maria, and I'm Agnes daughter. Agnes is John's grandniece, and lived in Tanganika till the age of 11. Her  father Robert (Barrhead, Scotland) went there in order to work for his uncle John at his farm, and took his wife with him. Their 3 daughters were born there (being my mum the oldest).

I'll tell my mum about this forum so she can contact you and tell you everything about her grand-uncle John. He loved her very much, as he never had any children of his own. And she's also investigating about her family history, so I think she'll be glad to talk to you about it.

Please excuse any grammar mistake, I'm Spanish -my mum taught me the English I know :) -

Kind regards,

Maria Rivero

Hi Simon. I thought it might be him but wasn't sure. Many thanks for your confirmation. As you say, it's a bit strange re the lack of responses but I guess many of our fellow 'inmates' don't know about this site. Anyway, many thanks for your responses; a member of our family will be very pleased by this info.

Hi Naomi, I hope you don't mind me asking you, or possibly Pat, whether either of you could tell me whether Paul Retzlaff Junior attended the Southern Highlands School?(Sao-Hill) The name is "ringing bells" that all! It would seem very unlikely, as Arusha School would I quess be the obvious choice, unless he played Cricket for Arusha and hence I have remembered his name. Thanks...Simon Watson.

Hi Andrew, I confirm that the photo is Geoffrey Holland with his Labrador "Jet". I would quess that this photo was taken in 1958 when "Jet" was a pup, as he did'nt have the dog in 1957 which was my first year.

Separately to this issue of yours Andrew,I find it amazing that there were 50-60 pupils at the Southern Highland School in 1957,but not one has made any comments as regards your issue, or any other posts of mine since I joined nTZ 3 years ago! Bizaar! V best....Simon.

Arusha School / Re: The tortoise (kobe)

VALE the tortoise.
It had to happen some day.  I was advised a couple of days ago that the tortoise has died. How or when I do not know but will try to find out.
An end to a chapter in the Arusha School - SO many past students and othere with an interest in the school have visited and taken photos of the tortoise.
There were two tortoises taken to the School by my father who was the foundation Headmaster but I only knew one tortoise. What happened to the other on I do not know.
