Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Lightly grease two 450g loaf tins.
Beat together eggs, oil, rum and milk in a bowl. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, bicarb, nutmeg and salt in a separate bowl. Mix the flour into the eggs until just moistened. Gently fold in the pineapple, cherries and coconut. Pour into prepared tins.
Bake in preheated oven until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean, about 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool on a wire rack.
