PersonalDavid Andrew Graeme

David was born in Birmingham, moved to Kent at the age of 11 months and, apart from boarding school years at the Royal Hospital School in Ipswich, spent the rest of his life based in the South East.

He worked in HM Customs & Excise for some 27 years before leaving to run a Company Formation Agency in the Medway Towns. During his career within Customs David became a Cutter Commander spending approximately six months each year patrolling the UK and Home Trade coastlines. The remainder of the year was spent rummaging vessels, car and baggage checks at Sheerness and Dover. There was also a period when David enjoyed (or was it endured?) his time as a Senior Officer in VAT. His last posting was as the Senior Officer at the Collection Coordination Unit in Gravesend.
