After graduating from Police Depot, I was transferred to Gwelo (Rural) where I spent most of my 3 year career - apart from 2 months in a temporary capacity at Umvuma & then serving out my final 6 months at Featherstone before my discharge "time expired - at own request". I then moved to South Africa where I spent the next 37 years with SAPPI (South African Pulp & Paper) Company, retiring at the end of 2002. My marriage to a Kiwi lady lasted 22 years during which time we produced 2 daughters - all of whom moved to Christchurch, New Zealand in 2000. I subsequently followed in November, 2007. I'm happily settled in Christchurch & have acquired New Zealand citizenship. I turned 71 in December, 2013. I've often visited the BSAP website to obtain news of my former colleagues.

Served in Highlands, Harare (Salisbury). I'm trying to piece together some memories of this time. Read Peter Godwin's 'Mukiwa' about his life growing up as a white boy and then NSPO in Rhodesia. He was in Morris depot at the same time as me, but in a different squad. S.O. 'Pop' Ellis (no relation) was my squad leader. Visited station and then-current M.I.C in 1987 -- all seemed well-organized and efficient. Brought back fond memories

After training in Harare was stationed at Gwelo, Selukwe, Lalapanzi, in District Police, then to CID Bulawayo. The country, the Zimbabwe People and the comradeship in the force were fantastic. I am sorry to find so few of the old comrades on this list but very happy to find there is an association and a list at all. If anyone knows where I can find some Squad XV/51 types please pass on my E-mail address. I have quite a few b/w photos I took in country. Maybe I could bore someone else with them for a change, instead of my wife. After leaving the force I spent 10 more years in business in Zimbabwe and Zambia.
