Chapter 10: Pedal Power and Seaweed
Das Island had many memorable characters and early in my second year ensconced there a guy arrived who certainly ticked all the boxes. Among the planes used to service the island was an aging four engine Heron, hired from a New Zealand company. Along with this reliable old plane (it must have been reliable as Queen Elizabeth had one), came a Kiwi pilot.
Chapter 9: In the Trenches and Treading the Boards
Among the many planned projects to be undertaken on Das Island was the construction of new management offices to supersede the prefabricated timber buildings that had served since the early days of activities there. The modern building was however to be located where the islands football pitch was situated and so I was charged with relocating it to a new designated area.
