G'Day Georgina! I started life in Nyasaland in 1949 and was raised and schooled there apart from a couple years in the UK. Dad was in the Nyasaland Police, and later Malawi Police force.
Returned to work in Malawi from 68 to 71, and moved to Rhodesia from 71 to 74. Lived in Avondale & Park Meadowlands in Salisbury. Spent most of my time in the bush surveying powerlines for CAPCO, from Que to Wankie was the most memorable one - through the National Park was fantastic. 1974 to the UK to qualify, then 79 to Papua New Guinea for 3 years.83 - 85 back to Africa, Maseru, Lesotho this time.85 to 86. The Cayman Islands, 87 - 88 Saint Lucia, 88 to 92 Qatar, through Gulf War. In 92 I drove back to UK through Saudi, Jordan, Syria, Turkey,Yugoslavia,Hungary, Slovakia, Poland, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France. In 95 I finally got my immigration papers for Oz and spent 4 years in Perth, then a couple in Kalgoorlie, & finally came to rest here in Northern Queensland. It's great, but there was never anywhere like Salisbury, Rhodesia - "Bamba Zonke". God bless all Rhodesians and Zimbabweans - the Tyrant's end will come! Congratulations on a great site, G!!

I am trying to find information on my biological parents, and the only info I have is the following:-
Father may have worked at the "Three Monkeys Inn" Marrandallas, around 1967/68/69 period.
He may be from England,
May also have farmed a tobacco farm in the same area.
I believe that both my mother and her brother Bruce was adopted with the surname of De Kock or Kok.
Bruce worked for Barclays bank in Johannesburg where he moved to.
I am presuming he worked for Barclays in Zimbabwe.
My mother's name is Madelene Janet De Kock (spelling could also be De Kok).
Madelene left Rhodesia late 1968 or beginning of 1969 and went to South Africa before she gave birth to me in July 1969.
She may be known as Janet and may have attended the Marrandellas High School around 1963/1964
Any information would be greatly appreciated, so that I can have closure to this chapter in my life.
