Hello All,


I hit enter too quick. The book can be ordered from CDU Press.


The flyer is reproduced below


In 1943, Australia made an agreement with Portugal that it would meet

discussions on trade, mutual defence and other matters concerning

Timor as soon as practicable. It was with this aim in mind that

appointed its first consul to Portuguese Timor, who arrived in Dili on
26 January

1946. That consul, Charles Eaton, seems to have been optimistic of

opportunities to develop trade and defence arrangements with the

and that optimism appears to have been shared by the Australian

By the time Eaton was replaced in October 1947, however, that enthusiasm

appears to have been on the wane. By late 1949, Australia was

closing its consulate in Dili and the second consul, Doug White, was
withdrawn on

23 June 1950.

This book, illustrated with many rare photographs, seeks to discover why
it was

that Australia established the Dili consulate with such enthusiasm in
1946, but by

late 1949 was considering withdrawing its consul and closing the

altogether. In the event, the consulate remained open and a description
is given

of the situation up until 1971, when its doors were closed for good.

however, seems to have lost interest in the colony well before then.
