On 19 October 1919 HMS New Zealand called at Christmas Island in the Pacific (now Kiritimati).
The log says they anchored off Cook Island (island in the entrance to the lagoon) at 16.33.
At 1800 the Admiral of the Fleet and staff landed.
[They never bother to say that people who have landing have later returned.]
At 1845 they 'weighed and proceeded as reqst' for Fanning Island (another atoll a bit to the north and east), where they also made a flying visit before going on Honolulu.
In the course of finding out where Christmas Island is I discovered this on wikipedia (so it must be true...)
"... Father Emmanuel Rougier, a French priest ...leased the island from 1917 to 1939 and planted some 800,000 coconut trees there. ... Joe's Hill was named by Joe English, who served as plantation manager for Rougier from 1915-19. English was left alone on the island for a year and a half (1917?19), with two teens, when cholera broke out in Papeete and transport stopped due to the First World War. English was later rescued by Lord John Jellicoe, 1st Earl Jellicoe, Admiral of the British Fleet. English, still thinking the war was in effect and that the ship was German, pulled his revolver on the British Admiral, causing a short standoff until some explanation defused the situation. Upon his rescue, English's adventures were later chronicled in the Boston Globe."
