Victoria Falls is Great
by Colin Campbell
I lived in Victoria Falls with my Father Gordon Campbell my Mom and sister in the early 1940's my dad worked with Ted Spencer at Spencer Airways, those were the days when Ted Spencer ( my Godfather ) and my dad took people from Vic Falls to England in an Avro Anson, many great stories from those trips, we remained at the Falls untile Ted was killed at Croydon England in a Dakota he had just purchased, all this took place on Take-Off this was one trip that my dad was not with him it was agreat loss to a great man. My father moved on to Salisbury and started working with CAA ( Central African Airways ) where he stayed until he retired in the 1990's
I have many fond memories of the Falls.
In 1977 I was stationed at the Falls with Immigration for a short spell. I am sure there are people there today who remember those wonderful Times. The Soper family with the crocodiles!!!!.
