Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
  • Intended address on discharge was "Kia Ora, Riuru, via Nairobi, British East Africa"
    His brother was a planter at the address and it seems he was joining his brother, also as a planter. Family lore has it that he married in Nairobi, but that has not been proven.

    His address and occupation are confirmed in the Kenya Gazette, in published electoral rolls dated:
    7 June 1922
    17 June 1925
    29 December 1927
    15 March 1930 AWMM
