I traveled to Barbados to watch an England cricket test match in march 1981, i was paired with a complete stranger (Nick Edwards) to keep the hotel costs down. In July 1981 i holidayed in the south of France with a friend. We played cards in the evenings with the people in the adjacent tent. They mentioned my sun tan and i told them the Barbados story. They said, 'that's funny' the barman at our local pub in Hertfordshire was in Barbados...Nick Edwards!
