Forum thread for campaign Christmas Island Nuclier Bomb Tests
“ Risk to forcess stationed at Chrismas island ”
The campaign to get compensation failed and although I had nothing to do with the compensation claim I do feel all forces attending christmas island should have received a campaign medal in reeconition of there services.

back home late 61.
Island for the Grapple tests I belive in 1958. As far as I know he never suffered as a result of being there although I knew he had something to do with radioactive sanples. I wonder did anyone know him.
Was engineer at CIBS - Radio Station - surviving OK at 80
On our Squadron we a Flt. Lt. who hated me and put my name down on the list, when I scrubbed it out, he then put it back up again. As I had less than 12 month to do I was ineligible unless I signed on and he could not make me do that.
I have kept in touch with quite a few who did go and sadly there are virtually none still alive.
The stories I was told of the test being carried out with members of the three forces hardly being given protection was quite disturbing at the time and it seems the cancer etc. problems seem to have been passed on their descendants .
