I just happened to be browsing the net and came across your new web forum site about New Guinea, seems I might be one of the first to have done so.
I was a resident in Lae from 1950 to 1973, but, how did I along with all us ex-pats get to PNG?
Well in those days, it was by DC3 or by boat. In my case, I arrived the 1st time by plane, but for the next decade our family travelled from PNG to Australia by boat.
I remember as a very young kid, being on the Bulolo when it was high aground on an island, its true.
And no doubt there might be some of us out there with great stories to tell of our times when travelling to and from PNG.
