hI . i AM tom davitt. Christmas Island 58/59. with 12 field sqdn re. We built the fuel tanks near the port, Searing heat and blistes bigger than eggs. Self inflicted wounds. I think there were 7 test during this period.2 or 3 N and rest A. No protection. Sat on beach , backs to the explosion , wait for the wind and turn around to watch the mushroom. There were only tented accom. at the port and in main camp . A week in Honolulu midterm, Thankfully no after effects . So many did suffer.

Will come back if i remember any thing else.

I like those memories which are short and sweet. Especially christmas time memories. So precious and valuable memories. I think my childhood christmas memories are more than current christmas. Waiting for this lovely christmas to see my dear santa with his reindeers.
