A letter from the British Army…

We received this nice letter from the British Army regarding our fire fighting at Mt. Kenya.


I just wanted to drop you a line by way of thanks to say how valuable the British Army found your contribution to the Mount Kenya Fire response. You may not remember me but I was the Major in charge of BATUK’s contribution being the civilian development officer here.

Dealing with you, your company and in particular Shawn was an utter delight who is a credit to your organisation. If I am honest we only really remained due to the commitment shown by Lady Lori as it was clear just the extent you were contributing in resources and effort.

I have to say you have a super pilot with Shawn who was just utterly professional and on side; quite frankly his piloting skills were just the best I have ever seen and I have been flown by heli into some fairly interesting places across the world – Shawn is without doubt the best I have seen.  The level of commitment that Shawn and Lady Lori showed to us and the fire was beyond re-approach and with troops deep in the jungle I was secure in the knowledge that we had a good man up in the air looking out for us and wouldn’t leave soldiers stranded – that type of commitment is usually the stuff found in war zones!

Once again thank you for everything, congratulations once again for such a professional response and I hope the business has recovered some-what with all that initial good will!

All the best and hope to see you and Shawn again when I visit the lodge.

All the best
