Jagjit Singh Gill (1953 - 1957)

Born in Entebbe, we moved to Kisumu where I attended Kisumu High School until 1953. I joined Racecourse Secondary School in 1953 (which later became ESS) and finished my schooling in 1957.

I joined East African Railways and Harbours in the Chief Accountant's office at the Railway Headquarters in Nairobi. In 1966, I joined Malawi Railways as an Executive Officer. I re-joined East African Railways and Harbours as an Internal Auditor in 1968 and left in 1972 when I emigrated to the United Kingdom. I joined British Gas and served them for 28 years in various Accounts and Debt Collection departments before retiring in 1999.

I was always a keen sportsman. I played Hockey for the Railways and Sikh Union and also umpired and coached Middlesex county youth teams. I captained the Harrow Veterans team and have participated in international tournaments in Holland and Germany.

I played Cricket and opened the batting for the Railways. We won the Commercial League for many years. I went on safari rallies with Joginder Singh "Simba of Kenya" and his brother Jaswant Singh. It was a one hell of an experience to be sitting with the world famous rally drivers!

I am married to Joginder who was a teacher. We have one son – Mandeep - who is a qualified solicitor. He is married to Krishna, a qualified accountant. We are blessed with two grand daughters Avleen and Tara who keep us young, healthy and energetic. We like travelling the world to watch Hockey and Cricket internationally.
