1. I was trying to find out the distance from the PNGDF Training Depot was from POM when I came across this site. It certainly brought back some memories as I was the Sgt in charge of the medical centre (RAP) at Goldie River from December 1972 to December 1974.
    If anyone can remember what the distance was it would be appreciated.
    A great site and keep up the good work.

    • Hello Ken. I have done that trip earlier this year but did not record the distance. I have now asked my Host to give me that distance so I can let you know.

  2. My husband Phil Imison was a Sgt in PNG at Moem Barracks in 1969 -70, with Garry Screen and Bob Duff. Garry has recently made me aware of this website and I would very much like to add Phil’s name to your list. He died on 17th October last year, too young at 65, and he would have been at the reunion like a shot, I can tell you!There are many slides that Phil took while he was in PNG – in Wewak, and Vanimo, as well as his little jaunts through the jungle with his mate in the regular army, Barry McLaren – pictures of rusty wrecks of war vehicles and artifacts. He had a ball up there.

    • Dianne we were all saddened to learn of Phil’s death in 2011. He worked conscientiously and enjoyed travelling by motorbike to see the TPNG culture.
      We are pleased to add his name (and memory) to the Members Page.
