And New Zealand invaded Samoa, ousting the Germans in WW1.  And there was a military railway in Samoa during WW2, I think.

BTW Frank I found  a historic railway in Palau.

Rod Hutch currently in Singapore.

G’day DFrank,


The Brits actually “garrisoned” Iceland with the civil administration of Iceland still the sovereign power.  They were not an “occupying force” in the sense of the Axis Powers invading other countries – and you left Italy out of your “occupiers”.  And don’t forget that on the cessation of hostilities in both Europe and the Pacific the Brits and US did occupy Germany and Japan as did Australia in Japan.


Pedantic to be sure but couldn’t help myself.

occupying forces in World War 2.
