      Hmmm, I knew three of the men in the photo, which was taken 6 years after I left. The Cable Station was instituted in the 1930s to boost the signal between Fiji and Bamfield, Canada. I don't know about the plane - there was a landing strip but only for very small planes...
      All the Cable station houses were concrete, except for the Manager's -it was wooden with a tin roof.
      The launches look very familiar so it must be an old photo (?late 50s?)
      The lagoon looks wide and good for shipping but it could not take ships larger than 600 tons. Coral boulders and many shallow areas.
      All quite nostalgic - thanks for posting!

      I missed the video - just watched it now. Quite interesting questions asked by the audience about various islands. I was surprised that my sister talked as though she was an only child. No mention of me, at all. Yet we did a lot of things together. including the catching of crabs to feed our pet fish.

      Thanks, Mark! I was wondering if one gets to the point when birthdays become irrelevant - but CVF has proven that theory invalid..!

    Belated Happy Birthday Nari.

                        Thank you all for your lovely birthday greetings, they are great!
                        And tell you what - I always have several permanent tabs on Firefox and when I boot up Google appears as well, of course, as my home port. Just now, as my pointer moved across the screen it passed over the Google icon and behold - a little message said "happy birthday, Ivy", on a background of the letters each with its candle flickering happily. I've never seen this before, have any of you had it? I have a Google account, hardly ever used, but I don't remember ever giving my d.o.b. to it. Presumably there's a server somewhere absolutely clogged up with names and birthdays in a massive permutation to cover each one of us?????? Boggle, boggle, boggle!
                        Anyone any ideas?
