The British and Empire inhabitants of the Fijian Islands also formed a volunteer corps to assist in the defence of their homes, as this picture demonstrates

It is from the first years of the 20th century. On display are the white ceremonial uniform, blue undress and light khaki service uniform. Either Martini Henry or Enfield rifles are carried.
More information on the volunteers is available in the CD Uniforms of the British Pacific http://www.uniformsotw.com/products/cd13.htm
