This series contains material from the Russell Islands, concentrating on the Lavukaleve language. It includes a handwritten (partly incomplete) comparative English-Lavukaleve vocabulary list, annotated by another author (but not Capell).

The Russell Islands are two important small islands, as well as several islets, of volcanic origin, in the central Solomon Islands. They are located approximately 48 km (30 mi.) northwest from Guadalcanal. In 1943, as part of American military operations during World War II, the islands were occupied by U.S. troops.
