I was in Bougainville from 1969 for 20 years, I recognised some of the people in the pictures you have included, I also seem to remember yourself but not sure, Russ Gill was also there for 20 years, Russ will be able to identify some of the guys and Russ keeps in touch with a lot of people from that era. Tom Richards was in Bougainville at the same time, Des Hudson currently in the USA married Tom's sister in law, they have 2-3 children (Tom you can pick up on that) I see that Chris Maxwell is in one of the pictures. Lindsay Swanson has names and e-mail addresses of quite a few "Bougainvilleans" you may want to contact him, including Ivan Bell e-mail, he was the "law" on the island, Goldfinger married in Bougainville and went back to New Zealand, I think, also you all remember John Davison.
