I came to Zambia in 1967 as a diesel mechanic to work for Smith & Youngson in Lusaka. We had 52 Canadian Kenworth Trucks transporting petrol & diesel on the Hell Run.
The Hell Run was a 1,200 mile road, mostly dirt, from Kapiri Mposhi to Dar es Salaam.

My father Jimmy Paterson worked for Smith and Youngson running the Chipata workshops. My father ended up in business with Dick Smith and they move to Botswana. They did employ a few ex S&Y people including Don Turner. Good to see old pictures.
