An historical audiobook 'Another load of Bull' by David Read, read from Jason Savidge. The war was over and David, returning to East Africa, asked himself, as did many of his contemporaries, "what next"? It was not an easy world in which to readjust. He opted to become a Livvestock Marketing Officer in Dodoma, with the Tanganyika Veterinary Department. Money was short, and Pat, who had also been demobbed and had joined him in Dodoma, nursed to help augment their income. Finally, the break David had been hoping for materialized and he embarked on a new chapter in his life as a wheat farmer on the Western slopes of Kilimanjaro. With no formal training, David survived largely on his local knowledge and language skills, supplemented by his cattle buying. Life on 'Mountainside' suited David, despite the constant battle against Africa's unforgiving environment, but the winds of change were to bring a greater challenge and one that would ultimately end David's dreams.
