I am looking for information on the above two people - my grandfather and great uncle - George Gilbert Milligan and Tom Milligan. In 1942 they left Australia, only for a few months and went to New Caledonia to work. I understand that this was to help in the construction of airfields for WW2. I think they were working for the Americans. As far as I know they were civilians.I don't know if it was some scheme that was running or how they were chosen. I understand they went over by boat - don't know its name. I am not sure how long they were there for. Would appreciate any info or guidance.
