Bwana Wa Polisi : The Story of a Policeman's Life in England, Nyasaland, and Bechuanaland, 1952-1967 Paperback / softback

Description

Christopher Bean was born into a police family in Yorkshire and joined the West Riding Constabulary as a cadet in 1952.

For the next fifteen years or so he continued a career in the police service, in the Royal Corps of Military Police, the West Riding Constabulary, the Nyasaland Police and finally the Bechuanaland Protectorate Police.

This account re-lives his experiences of those years, many of which are difficult to believe in these relatively enlightened days, and which often humorously outline life in Africa some half a century ago.

Although the story starts in the Britain of the 1950s, it leads into a post-war Africa, with independence arriving in most of Africa and illustrating the enormous difference in police work in the UK in those days, and the exciting life of a colonial police officer.
