    I met Joseph Kana in Naivasha, a small town 40 miles north of Nairobi in Kenya.
    I visited him with Janko Lazar (RAF 311 Squadron Pilot), the year was about 1965, Janko and myself were working for Bata Kenya. Joseph had a little house and small plot of land, about 1 mile from Lake Naivasha, where he lived with his English partner (I am not sure if they were married, they later separated and she returned to England).

    Later Joseph had a job with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation in Somalia, there apparently he lived with a Somali woman. This is the last I heard about him in the late 1960s.

    NB. Joseph was an amateur artist and gave me two watercolour paintings of African flowers. I still have these two signed paintings hanging on my wall reminding me of my time in Kenya.
