Falkland Islands (Malvinas).
Cecil Bertrand with his sheep on Carcass Island in the far west of the archipelago.
The island is roughly 6 miles (10 kilometres) at its longest and 124 miles (200
kilometres) from Stanley the capital. In this lonely spot Cecil and his wife Kitty
ran the sheep farm without help except in the lambing and shearing seasons. The
very flat Tussock Islands are close and visible but beyond them westward it is
open sea for 330 miles (530.5 kilometres) to the South American mainland.
