Speaking of leaving, it’s looking like a late August departure for me. That will be just over 21 months here by the time I leave – please don’t ask me what I’ll do when I get back! I think I’ve earned a month or two holiday to begin with… after that, who knows!
I still haven’t received mail, if you send something down it will probably be on the next Pharos. Given it’s a fisheries patrol vessel I’m not allowed to talk about dates as potential poachers might be reading this! Having said that we should have our next post by the end of next month.
Finally… Some new people subscribed last month (thanks!), a number of them mentioned a particular person when filling out the ‘interests’ box. I believe it was The Kinks who sang ‘Give the people what they want’. Who am I to argue with that…
Regular readers will remember a brass device that lives behind the bar. It has caught out just about everyone who’s attempted to blow into it to spin the Catherine-wheel on top. Blow correctly and it spins, blow incorrectly and you get a face (mainly the eyes) full of talcum powder. It has made a fool of Captains of Navy warships, senior management from the UK’s Foreign and Comonwealth Office and just about anyone who’s spent more that a few days at KEP (me included) over the last 6 years or so.
