The men needed hope and miraculously, they got it. The Bob Hope Show came to Pavuvu...Hope's group arrived in a formation of military Piper cubs, which flew from Banika through rain squalls, landing on a coral jeep road.

Aggies of the Pacific War by Walter Hines
We have tried some exotic foods lately...I have tried flying fish,breadfruit and some fruit called "canepas". Bill has eaten conch, a sea snail, yucca, goat and shark.He also drank PR moonshine, a concoction that has rum, raisins, fruit, cow manure and yeast in it. (Powerful stuff!) Our local community club was offering fricasseed goat, but we didn't make it that night.
