    Ian Gardner - the 'gap' will be cleared if I get my hands on the FD records for that year. The FD records often revealed when somone was on furlough, and also indicated who was 'acting' during that time frame.

    Bandula, history is a continuos, ongoing, thing so, if all planters do not post their details there will be no record of their lives and work.

    Good to see something by David here. Allow me to make a couple of small corrections for the record: On Alton I was not acting for Geoff Middleton but was Superintendent - Geoff had gone to Tangakelle - and Peter Innes was not on Moray but on Rosita at this time.

    Thank you Frederick for sharing your tea planting memories and in particular for acknowledging my father, Malcom K Furlong. Sadly, as you know, he passed away in 1998 and hence not able to contribute memories of his tea planting days on Moray Estate and Laxapana Estate in the 1960s. However, I do have his Ceylon planting history written by him and it is my intention to upload these details onto this website, hopefully by the end of this year.
