Contains slides covering most of the major islands of the group, both associated states and dependent territories. One relates to Marnham's official duties, the launch given to St Kitts in 1972.
[It seems likely that both Marnham GG/26 and Marnham GG/27 were taken in the same area, and as Marnham must have returned to St Lucia soon after, as 5-6 - see CC - were taken at Ciceron, it seems probably that they were of Barbuda, where the latter photographs of the previous film were taken, rather than Bequia on St Vincent].
