Summary This work draws upon oral testimonies by Fijian soldiers who took part in the British nuclear tests at Malden and Christmas Island during the late 1950s. The photographic and video archives at the Imperial War Museum in London have been important sources for Bolatagici in understanding the Fijian experience of these events. Broadening her perspective to include Fijian and British accounts, and to compare and contrast the archival footage made by the Ministry of Defence with the recollections of the Fijian veterans.
