I owe my fitness verve and zest for life to the Medical Officer in charge of Aden Hospital where after a game of football between Expatriate and Adeni Locals played under seering summer sun in 40 C temperature we not only lost but finished exhausted. He was about to take up the post of Chief Medical Officer of the entire Company and vowed he would get us fit. He authorised a gym to be built in the basement of Head Office which we could use in working hours. It more than paid off with virtually no lost time through sickness and it set me on the path of healthy living by keeping fit.
