UK Leave 1962

In 1962 I left boarding school in Iringa and, together with my brother, started at a boarding school in the UK. My mother and sister accompanied us on the journey from East Africa to the UK. For this trip we travelled by the LLoyd Triestino ship Europa and disembarked at Venice. We then took a sleeper train from Venice to London via Paris.



Here is the Lloyd Triestino ship Eurpoa in Dar-es-Salaam harbour.

My sister, Mum, Brother and me in the restaurant on the Europa. As it was an Italian line there was complimentary white and red wine at each meal. I am not sure what my brother and I are drinking.

We started school in the UK in September 1962 and my Mum and sister returned to my Dad by plane.
