The detonations took place on Christmas Island between 25th April 1962 and 11th July 1962. (Other detonations took place, but these were on Johnston Island, 580 miles from Christmas Island and in the Pacific Ocean off California).

In December 2021, US President Joe Biden awarded the US participants a medal for their service. The UK Government refuses to formally recognise the UK participants of nuclear testing. By undertaking this challenge you can help us raise funds and awareness.
