The conclusion outlines the changes to domestic service in Darwin and Singapore from the 1890s to the 1930s. The conclusion reflects on the differences between the two sites and the insights which an analysis of the master-servant relationship can provide into the contested nature of colonial power in these two sites. The book closes with a broad overview of the impact of the Second World War on the colonial project and domestic service in Singapore and Darwin.
