LOYAL PITCAIRN

OFFER FOR EVACUEES

LONDON. The Duke of Devonshire, UnderSecretary for the Colonies, spoke at Eastbourne Grammar School speech day.

Referring to the loyalty of the colonies to Britain during the war, the Minister said, an outstanding example was the action of the 123 inhabitants of Picteairn Island, in the South Pacific. Nearly all their menfolk joined the Navy, and during enemy air attacks on London this lonely island offered to take 40 evacuees. We could not accept this offer owing to the enormous distance to be travelled.
