This book gives an autobiographical account of the author’s time as a serviceman on Christmas Island in the South Pacific, where British atmospheric nuclear testing took place. The story begins and ends in England, but travels to and from Christmas Island, detailing life on the island and participation in the nuclear tests of Operation Grapple. The author primarily uses his notes, diaries, letters, and memory to structure his narrative. He includes photographs and sketches of living accommodations and comrades from his time on the island to enliven the story. The British tests on Christmas Island took place in 1957 and 1958.
