Dick Owen

Tom Lawrence, a friend of the Association, lives in Kenya and has been undertaking some local research projects. One subject of interest is the Nyeri cemetery and he has kindly passed on to us information he has gathered about Dick Owen and his grave.This has been posted to the Documents section of the archive. Owen, as most of you will know, was killed by a rhino in the Aberdare forest in 1955. If anyone can add further information, Tom would be pleased to receive it.

Another of his interests is past RAF activity in Kenya and some of his research has also been added to the archive.
