Re rinderpest:- when I lived in Africa for over two decades, we had a kind of antediluvian saying of "Before the Rinder was even a pest!"

Years later in the UK my family was blessed to cross paths with the wonderful Walter Plowright whom my better half helped to look after to his end - and a right good fellow too - a true gentleman scientist. The night he died, I raised a glass of Scotland's finest drop and gave thanks to his life on behalf of all my African friends - known and unknown - to the man who removed such a scourge from that beautiful land.
