My father was in the Navy serving on the Helena in the battle of Kula Gulf-the ship was sunk and some survivors floated to Vella la Vella where the natives hid Americans from Japenese, at great risk to themselves, fed them, build lean-tos to shelter them and kept Japanese away from American camp.
I would like to get in touch with descendants of those natives to thank them for all they did. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
