It was interesting when we got on the boat, I still remember it vividly. At about 4:00 AM, we got on the boat, we packed what we wanted to take. We were left a lot. The moment we stepped on the boat, the village just came alive with torches, lights and they just ransacked whatever was left.

And there's a fair bit left behind anything, everything from water jerry's through to bits of equipment. But our key equipment of obviously radios, et cetera, we made sure we packed, but there was a lot of stuff that we were advised just to leave.
