David Alan Smith

Nickname: Nala
House: Rhodes
Years: 1958-1961
I spent 5 years in England marketing central heating fuels for a Mobil Oil distributor, then travelled to New Zealand in 1967 to join my sister and brother in law (Barry Davies, POW 1949-1955) who had emigrated there in 1962. I joined a chemical company, marketing industrial chemicals, plastics and fertilizers.

In 1981 I started my own import/export company, trading in fertilizers, chemicals and more recently in nutraceuticals. I was married in 1972 to Marilyn who is from Queensland. We have three children, Jenny is 28, Caryn is 25 and Daniel is 20, and I have a grand daughter Imogen, 7.

Please read my essay entitled "Princo". It was written mainly for my kids - they asked various questions about my days in Kenya, so I wrote the essay about PoW among various other essays about Kenya.
