    I taught at a school off Badulla in the early 1970s, and sought the help of Mike Boyd-Moss, the manager of Telbedde Estate, for the school's sports meet. He gave permission for the cross country race to be run through the estate, sent a van to follow the runners, and donated a trophy. I invited him as a chief guest at the sports meet.

    I believe this is a photo of Adeline Mary Becher, Charles Braine's wife [the surround in certainly a match for the photo of Charles]. My mother was a Becher & my branch fairly distant to this one, but I have been collecting images of and researching all the Bechers I can identify. Thank you for your interesting account of their life.

    I live presently with my family in the United states. I worked at Malgolla estate when it was owned by Mrs. Laing and I remember Mike Laing coming to Malgolla estate from England to visit his mother. I also remember when Mossville estate which also belonged to the Laings sold to Mr. Robert Harley who was a planter at Monte Cristo Estate, Nawalapitiya. That estate was also taken ofver by JEDB.
