Whilst surveying in the Seychel Islands a group of us were put on Mahe to set up a radio signal station.during this period an atoll appeared in the Maldives and the ship set off to investigate.She struck a reef whilst investigating which effectively left us stranded on Mahe untill her return some several weeks later.I would love to know if any members were with me on this adventure
