Did Australia Have the Tongan Constitution Until 1980?


We were trolling through the Australian National Archives — the things we do for you, fellow Heralders — and found this photo, with the title: “Tongan constitution is returned to Tonga. Date: 1980”.

Anyone know anything about this? Was the Tongan Constitution, that foundational document of modern Tonga, held in Australia until 1980? Let us know!
