Antony Howard V Church
||Jan 1952 - Dec 1956|
I attended the Prince of Wales School in the Mau Mau years.
Princess Margaret visited Kenya on a Royal Visit to grant the capital Nairobi, city status in 1955. The Governor announced
a national holiday on the Monday for all schools in the Colony. My junior brother Colin and I decided to celebrate by
withdrawing our rifles from the Police armoury and do some hunting on the Athi Plains. We took a ride in a good trains on
Saturday, got off at Stony Athi station and walked out on to the Masai plains. We slept under the stars, shot an impala,
quartered it and lugged the carcase back to Nicholson House on the Monday, where we fed the house on barbequed venison and
converted the remains into biltong. What a weekend that was!
Since leaving school:
