This chapter describes Still’s life in Africa. He was stationed at an airbase near Accra on the Gold Coast, in what is now Ghana. He was the Personnel Sergeant Major and kept records of everything at the base. He met the challenges of the job and enjoyed the nearby beach, but he found the best aspect of his military experience to be the opportunity for travel and adventure in Africa, Egypt and the Holy Lands. He read widely but wrote and published little while overseas.

Keywords:   West Africa, Accra, Personnel officer, adventure, Egypt, Holy Lands
