I have not read this book except to check quickly if there is any mention of Dinner Island (Samarai island) in this book. And yes, there is mention. It says that Captain John Moresby named the island Dinner Island after he and his crew had a meal there.
There is a discussion going on as to who reallly named Samarai island Dinner island.
