    Hi Chas

    My father in law was in the paymaster's office up until after Mugabe came to power. If he is willing to help I will let you know & send you his email adress (with his permission of course).

    Afraid you are not on the Roll - no trace of your name. I spoke to Paddy Leen (former Pay Corps) and he says that they had a separate system for you SA types who were working with us.

    Thanks Chas,

    there goes my "street cred". One of the best periods of my life it was, I will never forget the hospitality, the friendliness, the informality in uniform, which worked exceedingly well. A chapter that is not lost, have been back many a time since.

    Cheers
