No 3699 Charles Brand Black was a member of the Kenya Regiment, during the Mau Mau troubles. I believe he could be a relation of mine and that his father was Matthew Alexander Black (my Grand Uncle) who was a telegraph engineer in Nairobi, he died in 1951 and is buried in the Forest Road cemetary. I know that Charles applied for probate of his will in 1951.
I also believe that Matthew was married to Elizabeth Margaret Millar Baxter Black nee BRAND, she died in 1950.
If anyone can provide information regarding this or help throw some light on the subject, I would be most grateful. Thank you
