    Do you have to live there to get the job ?

    Why, do you fancy it? It's based in the Falklands, so I guess you'd have to move there if you wanted the job.

    After I posted, I read the job description.

    As I have said before in another post, I was seriously thinking of applying for the post of Customs and Excise Officer for the Falklands and S.Georgia when I was 19. Only young men would be accepted because of the rigour of the posting..Part of the time you were required to live in S,Georgia during the summer whaling season.

    It seemed like a good adventure to a daft boy. I probably thought of myself as a Shackleton clone - hardly - the folly of youth !
    In those days you were isolated...no way of getting out except by a long sea voyage and the posting was for 3 years.

    I talked to someone who had done it and he said that the place stank of whale oil and penguin shit. Your only recreation was drink and playing cards.
    That put me right off ! Application withdrawn. I believe that left only two applicants.

    Anyway, I was waiting for the Fiji posting !
