One of the African countries to change its name during the Wind of Change was Bechuanaland which became Botswana.
Here Jubilee 45599 carrying the old name of course shares Willesden shed with a Stanier Pacific.
Bechuanaland was one of the countries after which Jubilees were named which had me browsing the atlas adding to the educational quality of trainspotting which many never realise!
