Dear Editor,

My wife Christine and I are very sad to learn of the death of Sir Baddeley Devesi,
Solomon Islands first Governor General, who I was proud to serve under as Commissioner of the Royal Solomon Islands Police. I could not have asked for a more co-operative, helpful and understanding officer to work with in getting to grips with and solving the many problems facing us during those first years of Independence. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Yours sincerely,

John Holloway,CBE,QPM,CPM
