As someone who was there, this account tells it as it was. After being exposed to two of the H-bomb detonations, my wife gave birth to two children who were allowed to die because of serious deformation. One child was born in the RAF Changi service hospital, and because I was questioned to discover if I had been on Christmas Island, it was clear that the the RAF was well aware of the derious genetic effects of servicemen's exposure to radiation on The Island. I didn't have the money nor determination to pursue the matter. In addition, being a regular in the RAF it was implied to me that should I pursue the matter it could detrimental to my career in the RAF. I know one guy who was so affected by his experiences on Christmas Island that he took his own life after his wife gave birth to a severely deformed child. Most of those who served on Christmas Island are, like me, in their seventies or older, or are already dead so the matter has successfully been buried by the British Governemt, It's good to know that an account in print will survive us in this book.
