Hi, was looking at your website, my father told me about it, he worked there (at Panguna) and we lived there from '71 to '79, in Arawa. It was very interesting to read and see the old place. I was only 3 when we went over and it was the only place I knew that existed (growing up in paradise was hard....) until returning to Australia in '79. I can still remember going to the "movies" in the hut, and the natives coming up and selling their wares at interval. We lived in Arawa and often stayed at Loloho Beach, as well as visiting and fishing off many islands. I have heaps of photos most of them are still in slide form. I will get some transferred to photo and send them to you for your web site.
Thanks for bringing back good memories
