Kenya Police - John Eisler, Nairobi, 1947-1959
« on: Saturday 26 May 18 13:24 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I am really hoping some kind person will be able to help me as I am a little out my depth here  :-\

I am helping a friend try and find information on their Father, and hopefully a photograph or two?! Let me give you some background info...

John EISLER was born 8-1-1924 in the UK district of Marylebone. 1939 saw him at boarding school, Aldenham in Elstree.
He out to Kenya on 25th August1947 aged only 22 and was an Inspector in the Police becoming an Acting Assistant Superintendent in 1952. He was living in Nairobi in 1958 with his wife Zoe and two children were born out there. The family then moved back to England (Harpenden) in July 1959. John passed away in 1980.

I have emailed the Kenya Police (twice) to see if they have any photo's they would be able to share but as yet heard nothing. I am hoping someone may be able to suggest a different avenue for me to try or even have a contact in Nairobi who may be able to help?

Many thanks in advance

As you have had no response from the Kenya Police, have you tried the Kenya Police Association Archive?
http://thekpa.blogspot.co.uk/2017/06/kenya-police-archive.html

The web page has a contact e-mail.
