Clubs (Fiji and Solomon Islands?)
1 Attachment(s)
My friend Ray just acquired these clubs, but frankly i know very little about such things. One seems to be from Fiji and the other possible the Solomon Islands. He is figuring these to be WWII era GI souvenirs, but they seem a bit too plan for the tourist trade. What does the club club think? ;)

The mace is Solomon and I suspect the other is too. I agree WW2 souvenirs. I post an article on a thread somewhere, about the souvenir trade in ww2 Solomons. It became quite a cottage industry. Many fine club were also collected by service men. Doubt I will find it again.

Both are solomon island clubs, although the black one is probably from rennel island, also both probably souvenirs
