Born in Nyasaland and moved to Rhodesia at the age of 5 when my father's job in the Nyasaland Police there came to an end (investigating political detainees, he unfortunately reported that most of them had done nothing wrong!!). After Springvale and Falcon, had 2 weeks holiday before joining Squad 14/79, which was almost immediately designated a mounted squad. Did escorts for the 1980 Independence celebrations, opening of Parliament and Police Display. Posted to Inyanga, where my brother had been before me in Special Branch GC. Departure in June 1981 apparently not a moment too soon...5th Brigade took over Inyanga Army Base a few weeks later. Now in Hastings, UK, working there and in Teddington, and doing a bit with the RNLI in my spare time. Interested to hear from anyone who served at Inyanga or in Squad 14/79.

I mostly spent my time in PDTS as an Instructor. Looking back now, they were by far the best and happiest years of my, uncomplicated, life. However,I now realise how we were always kept at a point of being just over broke. I have also learned, I was there because I chose to be there and it was more comfortable to stay, than leave. If I could have my life over I would not want to change anything as I learnt, honesty, discipline,loyalty and faith in a good system.
