No, I was an actress at the theatre in Nairobi. But there were a lot of clubs and bars that were popular with the colonials and ex service personnel that stayed on in Kenya. I loved it out there, I bet your grandparents did too.

Uncle Bill was a giant of a man he was often called on to sort out family squabbles including domestics in Henage Street. He also served in the guards.

Sorry posted too soon. The first is the Pheasey side from Cubington my grandad Taplin is the third gent from the left. The second is my cousin Carols wedding from West Brom the third another Cubbington wedding but no names on the back and the fourth is aunt Freda from Ireland and uncle Normans second wedding. Should have said second reception as the church wedding was in Ireland Dublin to be precise. Jean.
