I was on the Empire Halladale in March 1955 on my way to Kenya with the 1st Gloucesters. Does anyone remember being bussed from Barnard Castle a short time earlier to see the film "Simba Mark of the Mau Mau". Not exactly the film you would expect to be shown before setting off to such a dangerous area. The ship was stifling below decks and we couldn't wait to sleep on deck in the Mediterranean.
