Comment by Art Palmer — December 26, pm. Hello, just to say that i spent a year teaching out in Guyana from I am also from Scotland, i was just wondering where you are?
This is a very interesting site indeed. Comment by Steven — September 12, pm Reply. Left over 50 years ago. Would like to konw your impression of the place and what you were teaching.

My Dad made a post on Land Rovers over here. Old Land Rovers never die. Comment by Yaseen Hosein — October 5, am Reply. Guyana has made me who i am. BobW Meliswa, I echo your sentiment. Sometimes I wonder if it is just fondness for our beginings, or if Guyana has something special.
I suspect both might be true. They include cross-channel barges and Saint Class ocean rescue tugs for use in WW1, ferries for Hobart and Sydney Harbour until the bridge was opened inother craft for African rivers, and tugs and barges for Argentina.
I became aware in the early eighties from the Saltney Historical Society that a handful of these vessels was thought to be still afloat. From I spent five years in Munich, so the research was interrupted. Carr was afloat in Guyana. The problem has been general refusal of all my funding applications. Fortunately John Grimshaw and his wife Pauline found my internet material and contacted me before going on vacation to Guyana, so we talked, met and he went off to see the country and visit the ship.

Fond memories of this proud little ship, I used to live at Wales and often saw this wonderful bright white little ship steaming proudly up the Demerara to McKenzie. Comment by bill — October 11, pm Reply. Hi Bill: Where in Guyana is Wales?
I left at a young age and I was not allowed to explore much when I was there. I wish I could get a copy of a map of Georgetown from the 60s — 70s. My Mum is now gone but she would talk about places and streets and I have no idea where they are. I went to BHS and rode my bicycle to school. On the way from my house which was in the poorer part of town to BHS.
Can anyone tell me if they know the rich neighborhood and what streets that would have been. Comment by Rita — April 13, am Reply. If you went to Bishops you were at least older than ten Phone Rap - Citizen Fish - Psychological Background Reports (CD).
You should be able to remember where you lived in terms of street address. From that some-one could tell you where you lived and which rich neighbourhoods you passed.
Comment by Richard Allicock — November 22, pm. I stumbled upon this site while doing some research on Guyana and found the contents to be very interesting reading having been born much Phone Rap - Citizen Fish - Psychological Background Reports (CD) than the the wonderful folks who posted coments — I must admit that I am really touched by their expressions of love and fondness for Guyana.

Nice site Bob, Lovely photos, brings back memories, distant though they may be.
I distinctly remember you and your brother having bright red welly Boots when we came to visit you in Mckenzie, we are same age,that must have been about 50 years ago now. I visited you Dad in Boston and he was very happy to see me, as Leslie always made a point of dropping by to see them. Peter learnt that I was interested in playing classical guitar…I knew of no one else that did and he gave me a Carcassi Manual which was a great help.
On Sundays I used to visit the home in Kitty which over- looked the sea wall. We would listen to guitar music and early New Orleans Jazz and Blues while painting. I left Guiana in and returned in Peter and Pat had sold the house and were about to leave the country. I lost track of them but the memory of a great friendship remains. Comment by Stanley Greaves.

Timbers as sawmill manager after it was acquired by the Colonial Development Corporation. Wong, both as our dentist and socially. My Dad was an accomplished artist in his own right, and he tried to persuade Peter to work more at his painting, which he thought was exceptional.
In fact before we left Georgetown, Peter gave Dad what we considered his masterpiece, which depicts the view from the back of their house in Kitty. Dad gave me the painting in as a wedding present, and it is hanging prominently in our living room to this day. Comment by Thomas Hasek — September 28, pm Reply.
Correction to my previous comment — it just occurred to me that I have a name wrong. Comment by Thomas Hasek — September 28, pm. I would very much like to see a photo of your Peter Anderson painting. Could you also email it to me? I knew Leslie Wong well. He was a family friend, and our dentist. He introduced me and my brothers to sailing at the Demerara Sailing Club, Snipes in those days.
Pat was a bright and engaging woman. She would visit my parents from time to time, though Leslie was a regular at our house in Cowan St. The last time I saw Peter must have been in the late 60s, at Fishermans Paradise in High St, when he designed and ordered some stick-on decals for equipment we were making.
Comment by George Jardim — September 28, pm. I also have a second Andersen painting — of a young boy. My grandfather worked at BG Timbers as an engineer. My mother lived on the compound with the family, Donald Blaquiere.
Comment by Kathryn Jorge — May 24, pm. Blaquieres were neighbours three houses from us in the BG Timbers compound at Houston. We were in the house closest to the river on the north side of the road, and we originally had the whole house, before my Dad had it converted into two apartments.
Then we had the lower apartment, with the Garrity couple upstairs — they were known as Gary and Mac, and my recollection of them is distinctly negative. Blaquieres had three daughters I believe — and the only first name I can recall is Maureen. Did you know the Blaquieres? Comment by Kathryn Jorge — April 17, pm. Hello everyone, by accident I stumbled upon this website, and oh my goodness, it sure evoked some fantastic memories.
My Uncle had a friend by the name of Mr. Oxley, that operated a launch one of many between MacKenzie and Georgetown, which was a less expensive way to travel at the time. Yes, I was one of those that rode on the R. Carr, and it was so sad to see what became of that once majestic looking vessel.
Now here is something real funny. His home was located about thirty yards behind the church. This was during the late fifties. Last time I saw her was Sept. They are all in the US currently. Their dads name was Rudolph. He was employed at Demba as a deisel-mechanic. Their mothers name was Mavis. The only bad thing about MacKenzie for those who were visiting, was how COLD it became at night, especially the water…. I could go on forever. Comment by Hugh Pickering — March 24, pm Reply.

Having gone to the site of British Guyana now Guyana i am surprised that there is so much info.
I spent my time there from end of February until October I was attached to the Royal Anglian Regement. I did have contacts to the local people, occaisionaly being invited to thier house for a meal but of course never had any adresses to take back to england with me, I have often about Guyana and how it would be nice to go back there to see how the country has developed since then.
Should anybody who can recollect those times and wish to send me an Email, I would be delighted. Time is like water, there has been a lot of water gone under the bridge since then exactly like time. I have been living in Germany since leaving the Army at the end of October and now I am one of those people they call a Senior Citisen, pensioner. I still have fond memoreys of Guyana.

My brother Michael just forwarded this site and as I read along — what memories. I just noticed you mentioned Elinor and Murphy Dasilva. We used to live next door to them on Brickdam. I had left Guiana in to study Nursing in England. She also lived on Brickdam near to the Dasilvas. Comment by Barbara Chalifoux nee Greenidge — July 16, pm.
Karen, I believe my father in law served with your Dad — his name was Fred Turner and he was posted at the same time and married a local girl there Gloria Hill.
They did live near the Da Silva family. Fred is now in a nursing home athough we do recall him speaking of a friend who passed a few years ago from a brain tumour so expect this may well have been your dad. Comment by Lorraine Duffy — April 17, am. Gloria sadly passed away a few years ago now, however Mark does keep in touch with relatives many who live in Canada and Florida. Fred is still with us and in a nursing home.
Gloria — had three children — Mark, Debbie and Peter — who all live in Australia. I did notice you on Facebook so hopefully we can link up. Is this your brother? If he is, I would be glad to hesar from him. Phone Rap - Citizen Fish - Psychological Background Reports (CD) by Albert Gonputh — April 17, pm. Lorraine Duffy wow that must have been dad….
