Greg W. Becker
While at the Patch, I learned:
That I was a much better swimmer than student
How to live and deal with people of every imagined nationality
How to smoke cigarettes (see photo below).
After 4 wonderful years in Kenya, I returned to the United States and studied business and economics at a small
New England college. I then worked for a firm in New York City for 25 years, got married and have two boys ages 24 and 22.
If I could repeat my years at PoW, I’m sure that I would be more appreciative of the whole experience – the beautiful
campus, the wonderful atmosphere, the great friends and how tirelessly Oliver Wigmore and staff worked to give me (us) a
“My First Day At POW”
I believe this was taken under the floor of Grigg House (if not, then it probably was Nicholson House) in 1962. I tagged
along with the Chetham brothers on the train from Mombasa. We arrived at PoW before the other boys and had run of the
campus for the day. Anthony Chetham is on the right of the photo above and his brother, David, is to his right. I don’t remember the names
of the two blokes to the left of David – maybe someone can identify them?
