was a good gig. Just over a week in the Seychelles for their
independence, Ben Finney was the Boss.
The Staff Band was staying in
one of the better hotels, all found, including chits for meals
and drinks in other hotels if we fancied a change. We even had
special chits for the bar, 'to replace essential body fluids
lost in the heat' well done the man who did the recce. In fact,
1976, it was hotter in the UK which was experiencing one of
the driest summers on record.
At one of the hotel's social nights a few of us met up with
a couple staying for their honeymoon. An RN CPO and CPO Wren
who'd spent a small fortune to unknowingly share a hotel with
a Bootie band who were all victaulled for free. Quality!
