I am a Falkland Islander who travelled to England in 1963, with the support of a Falkland Island Government Scholarship, to be educated in Dorset. I graduated as a teacher and taught in several Secondary Schools in Bristol and London before taking early retirement in 2004. I worked as an Education Consultant until 2010. I currently live in Bristol but visit my mother, who lives in Stanley, as often as I can. Between 1957 and 1960, I lived on South Georgia where my father was the Chief Wireless Operator. I recently wrote a book about this part of my childhood with the title "In The Shadow Of Shackleton's Cross”.
