Although unknown to the majority of their domestic populations the governments of Britain and France jointly maintained a group of south west Pacific islands for over 60 years. This book provides first hand accounts written by some of the officers responsible for this unique form of administration during its final phase. The reader was a Voluntary Service Overseas volunteer 1970-71 and the events described ring true with the experience and impressions of one working, for a short time, at the very lowest tier of the British Service.
