    Good article.My father has fond memories of parties and various gatherings with SDs at estate bungalows, in Maturata and other areas of hill country. This was in the 50s n 60s when he was working at Maturata and Badulla hospitals as a young doctor.

    Noel William Bentley-Buckle was my grandfather, he was indeed a tea planter in Ceylon, however my brother would no more about where. He did not die in Ceylon, but in the Seychelles were he moved in the early 50's I think, so I'm not sure about him haunting the bungalow. He did brew some kind of concoction during the war, that is definately something I heard over the years. Even running his vehicle of some sort of alcohol brew.
