Uk LeaveTrip

In 1960 while my older sister and I were at boarding school in Iringa my parents and younger brother and sister returned to UK on leave. These photos were taken on their return to Dar-es-Salaam by ship sailing down the west coast of Africa and travelling to Dar via the Cape of Good Hope.

My elder sister and I spent the easter holidays staying with family friends in Dar.

My Dad, brother, Mum and sister on the Rhodesia Castle in London before setting off for East Africa in 1960.


Here is my Mum, sister and brother with our cousin who was seeing them off.
