Baldev Singh Jassal (1960 - 1963)

I was born in Mombasa and then we moved to Nairobi. My primary education was at Juja Road Primary and I joined ESS in 1960. In 1964 I went to Chandigarh, Panjab, where I passed my pre-medical exams for entry to medical college. Unfortunately, I had to leave India for the UK during the 1968 'Exodus' and was unable to continue with my education.

In the UK, I eventually secured a job at the Midland Bank head office as a junior clerk, and I continued there until I retired as a senior supervisor and an authorised signatory for HSBC bank. I had to take early retirement due to the ill health of my parents.

I spent 4 wonderful years at ESS and enjoyed playing hockey and volleyball. I was also a keen athlete. I participated in the long jump, high jump and long distance running for Congo House. I was nicknamed 'Baldy' by my English teacher Mr Mendonca, who gave names to many others also.

I am happily married, have a daughter and a son and 3 grandchildren to date.

- As of October 2006
