The Commandants ... by M.G. Britts

Thursday, November 14, 2019

Norfolk Island, the beautiful island the British chose as a penal settlement and source of ship building materials, became living hell for thousands of convicts.

Unfettered by government control, the Commandants of Norfolk Island were brutal and sadistic rulers of this tiny island, turning it into a place to rival the concentration camps of later years.  

M. G. Britts graphically depicts the impressions made by the succession of brutal Commandants who made the name of Norfolk Island notorious around the world.

I work in a courthouse, so when I served jury duty, I knew most of the staff. As I sat with other prospective jurors listening to a woman drone on about how long the process was taking, a judge and two lawyers passed by, giving me a big hello. A minute later, a few maintenance workers did the same.

That set off the malcontent: "Just how long have you been serving jury duty?"
