Surprisingly there is something to be learned from  this rather dull photograph.


  • Tent guy ropes are there to be tripped over – especially in the dark.
  • Two people are not enough for a stretcher – especially if the passenger is a Fijian from BATT. On the other hand four stretcher bearers would be 30% of the FST.
  • A flat smooth surface to walk on makes life much easier and safer.
  • Air conditioning is a blessing.
  • The locals will happily watch you work on their behalf.
