During WW II the Japanese airforce flew air raids not only over the mainland of the Northern Territory of Australia , but also over the sparsely populated islands off the coast. The informants describe the changes in their everyday life on Croker Island during the war time, and name several hunting and camping places where their parents and other family members used to stay and take refuge. They also retell the locally famous story of how Dick Malwagu and Lazarus Lamilami found a Japanese soldier on Croker and delivered him as prisoner of war to the authorities in Darwin.

Joy Williams Malwagag tells the story of Walkarnu, or Bani Warrkbi, a man who was trapped alone in a clam shell, and who drowned and was turned into a rock which is visible today at low tide.The rock is situated beyond the north end of Minjilang Bay on Croker Island, just around the point. Anyone wanting to go around that point should ask someone in authority, who knows about that place. If they go by themselves without knowing, they might bring down catastrophe on themselves and others.
