Wilson Junior School 1961

I left Kenya in the summer of 1961 to return to the UK. My father was in the Royal Signals stationed at Kahawa Camp (Thika?) but we lived in Kenton Drive, Nairobi, not far from the Arboretum. The photo was taken at Wilson Junior School, out near Wilson Aerodrome. The teacher's name was Fagge (or Wragge?), and I imagine it was taken at the end of term, around June, 1961. I just thought it might help jog some memories!

We came to Kenya from Libya back in 1956. My father was in the RAOC at Kahawa Camp. Believe my sister went to St. Mary's and I to Cavena. I am one of those white Englishman whose heart will be forever be in Africa. I was lucky to have a wonderful childhood under the African sun which has always remained close to my heart.

I am trying to piece together old family history, and am searching for any information, military record, for my late father-in-law, who served in the Kenya Regiment.

1051 PETHICK Robert Gordon

He passed away in Kenya in 1947, leaving his wife, Inge, and 2 children, Gordon Anthony Pethick, aged 12, and Timothy Mortimer Pethick, age 2. Both children were born in Nakuru - Timothy Mortimer Pethick, on the 21st March 1945. Were would the records of birth, marriage and death be held?

What incident happened and caused Robert Gordon Pethick to die? Anyone out there who can assist, or suggest where I can continue my search?

Many thanks and kind regards, Jenny Pethick-Nelson

Dear Peter, I wonder if you would display this photo on your missing persons page please. This is a old friend of my wife's father who has sadly now died. We would love to get in touch with this man as he may be able to tell us about their life in Kenya in the early 1960's. Although we have this picture, unfortunately we don't know his name, except we think it might be John. The photo was taken in Nairobi around 1966 we think. If anyone recognises him we would love for them to contact us.Thanks very much for help. We love the website - absolutely fascinating. Regards, Roy.

I went to Mdme Zerkovitz ballet school and I'm researching any information on her and the cultural side of Nairobi in the 50s and 60s.
