“Britain was still undergoing food rationing several years after WW2 and
London was frequently covered in Smog from all the coal burning.
Winters always seemed very cold and there was no central heating in our
house. The Seychelles, East Africa and the excellent catering on the
KAMPALA seemed like paradise to a young Cadet. Happy days indeed and
never to be forgotten.
Salaams” Peter Glass
