Cyril Cato wrote some impressions of the work. “Early this year I spent a month in the Society’s van, assisting in the work carried on by Mr. Clarkson. This was one of the happiest months of service and many times I regretted that the denomination I represent did not carry on such work. I praised God because he had raised up men with vision to see that the
work was done, and that He had separated my beloved brother in Christ to go forth in this war.”
Cyril Cato was very well qualified academically, was a trained teacher, and had been the Methodist Conference evangelist in Tasmania for the year 1928, before training for the ministry between 1929 and 1931. In 1932 he began two years of ministry at Hopetoun before going as a missionary to Fiji in 1934.
In later years he gained a PhD in Fijian anthropology, and later still ministered in New South Wales. He died in 1961.
