This memoir of an 85 year-old Japanese/European woman gives an insight into multi-cultural, pre-war Darwin, the pearling industry in which her father was involved and internment in Victoria during the war. She records her experiences nursing TB surgical patients in Kuala Lumpur under the Colombo Plan during the Emergency in the mid-50s. Also included is the story of her Polish husband who fought the Communist insurgency in the para-military arm of the Malayan Police. While depicting the dark period of her life, there is also an appreciation of the lighter side with its moments of hilarity.
