I worked on Mount Pleasent airport in the Falkland islands for an 8 months contract. in 1985/6. I was not and never have been in the Army or Navy or Airforce, I was just a man trying to earn a few bob as an Engineers Chainboy. This is one of the drawings I have done for a book about my life I am writing.
The image shows me on civilian barrier duty keeping an eye on traffic as the plane comes in to land, once it has landed I wait for the RAF to contact me to open the barrier and allow traffic through..
