Bumbling through Africa

Frank Tennant (CO 1949-54) served his National Service in the British Army, where he was seconded to the Somaliland Scouts, a British Colonial Regiment. Returning to the UK, he decided the ideal lifestyle would be to farm in Africa. After driving through Africa and realising that it was not the place to invest his future, he ended up on a large sheep station in the Australian outback where he wrote an account of the Bumble Expedition.

Finding the draft in early 2021, Frank realised the changes that had taken place in the sixty years since driving through Africa and considered how this could well be of interest to others. In June 2022, Frank published Bumbling Through Africa: An Account of the Trans-African Bumble Expedition 1960-61.
