I have just started reading a history of the Seychelles by Deryck Scarr (The Seychelles Since 1770; London: Hurst & Co., 2018). The book is written in a convoluted style with a lot of digressions, although it is interesting nonetheless. The index is terrible. I am still in the C18th and looking ahead I don’t think there’s much about WW2. This has made me curious about the extent to which Seychellois men participated in the War effort. Did some of them go to the East African mainland and join the King’s African Rifles, for instance? Surely some of them served in the Royal Navy? I shall research this a bit and I hope to learn more from the Scarr book, but I would be interested if anyone here knows anything.
