History Information

Vila is the capital of the Vanuatu group of islands in the south-west Pacific. Its land-locked harbour was used for amphibious exercises during the Second World War and a naval base was established at Havannah Harbour for the repair of damaged ships. The larger island of Espiritu Santo became an important New Zealand naval and air base. Port Vila Municipal Cemetery contains two Commonwealth burials of the Second World War.
