The Family

This story of how our father and mother met was told to me by our mother two years before she passed away.

Our father was a member of the Fiji Military Forces (I am still trying to find out details of where he served) . Just before he left the Army he went to a dance in Toorak, Suva. Our mother was also at the dance. Our father approached our mother and asked her to dance. Before the evening was over he asked her if she wanted to go back to Rotuma with him as his wife. She did not hesitate but immediately said "YES". I asked her why she agreed so quickly without even knowing anything about him. She replied ..."It was his Uniform he looked so good."

She did not even know where Rotuma was so she must have suffered an enormous culture shock when she arrived there. Imagine having to learn a whole new language.

There is more to this story which will be added to soon......
