Winston Jackson emailed from Cape Lambert:

We lived on Bougainville from September 1978 till May 1982.
My eldest son Ben started school at Bovo International.
I was Construction Manager for Minenco and looked after many projects including new ball mills, flotation cells, gas turbine installation and lots of civil stuff.

I've been in construction Management and Project Management all my working life including 2 more projects in PNG, the Hides gas project and Lihir gold mine.

Recently I scanned all my old Bougainville slides to digital media, but they were quite faded by the time I got around to it. Time to scan the prints next.

The time we spent living in Arawa (section 22) were some of the happiest times I can remember.

My home email address in Perth is bostaurus[AT]
