    So many memories invoked here. I was born and lived for 8 years in Madulkele, very close to your hometown. My mother was Organist at St Mary's Madulkeke, where my father Lesley Fryer is buried. After a year of school in Ooty, I was at The Hill School, Nuwara Eliya, when my father unexpectedly died. Our estate was called St John's Hill, Madulkele. He had had the whole complex built himself, using elephants to clear the trees, etc. Unfortunately, his beloved factory developed a large crack, and was demolished around 1980. Any articles you might have would be of interest to me.

    Apologies, when I wrote this I didn't realise Lindula was also a town - Garden Watson may have been associated with a neighbouring Estate.
