As my own ‘piece of equipment essential for the field’ I would strongly recommend a tennis racket; it is devastatingly effective in clearing a room of bats. He has a wittiness that reminds me, oddly enough, of the way that Hugh Grant’s characters often poke fun at themselves in movies. Learning a little about Cameroon was an added bonus.
