Circa 1950 By Tony Chetham En route from Nanchingwea to Dar es Salaam, mother & aunt Ingrid hitched a ride aboard this Bristol freighter. Operated by 2 yes RAF officers (Noon & Pearce) following end of WW2, bases were in Nairobi & Dar es Salaam, carried freight for the Tanganyika Groundnut Scheme. Never authorized to carry passengers on schedule services this was a refueling stop in the Southern Highlands of Tanganyika. A rough airstrip with isolated tent where those on board rested whilst A/C refuelled. Mother & Ingrid re boarded with myself. It was not until they reached end of the take off strip mother realized she had left brother being in his mosses basket in the tent. The alarm was raised, A/C returned to stand, recovered David & they were then able to continue on their journey to Dar es Salaam.
