A NOTE: I discovered this photograph mounted on cardboard in my Mss depository. I could not recollect how I got it but on my recent trip to Sri Lanka David Colin-Thome informed me that his mother Moira had presented it to me. Percy Colin-Thome would have been the person who identified all the personnel for me when I placed the image in my sister’s book, Galle As Quiet as Asleep. The late Percy Colin-Thome, a gentle soul we all miss, worked closely with meand Ismeth Raheem in preparing the book People Inbetween during the late 1980s.
