Chagos

Sunday's roast

Arrival
 

Inside Salomon Atoll

Chagos, the lost archipelago, the location of the American base Diego Garcia (a base for secret business).

The Chagosians were relocated by the Poms (experts at relocating people) to Mauritius and the Seychelles most likely at the request of their mates (the secret men) and the poor buggers were left without a home and are still trying to go back (fat chance).

The British have made Chagos a marine park (very convenient).

Stray sailors are discouraged to stop there by charging 50 pound a week and are not allowed to fart; otherwise they will be fined.

The ruins on the island are an indication of the primitive ways the Chagosians lived.

The Poms based at Diego Garcia do a Tour of Duty once a month to make sure you are legal and to try to recruit you to join MI5 and to report anything suspicious so I was part of the spy agency for a month.

Nothing to report “Your Majesty” Not even wild naked women running amuck

I met a few people, the good and one’s that think they own the place (full time with the secret service)

One of my new recruits forgot how to climb palms trees and fell eight meters while chasing coconuts and managed to break his leg. After packaging his leg the best we could we explained to him that the only burial if he died was as food for the sharks so that stop him from complaining too much.

We shall get an X-ray when we get to Mauritius as we cannot do much for the poor bugger.

So, if you are interested in Chagos, Google it and find out by yourself.

God bless
