The Reverend Thomas Williams writing in 1884 referred to the Ula; 'another weapon much used in the missile club, which is worn in the girdle sometimes in pairs like pistols..... This is hurled with great precision and used formerly to be the favourite implement of assassination'. (Rev T Williams 1884 Fiji & the Fijians: 47)
