From the webmaster of the Bougainville website:

We've just come home after a couple of hours' 'aquatic therapy' in the heated indoor pool at Ulladulla. In the men's changeroom I found a discarded CAMAY soap wrapper which immediately brought back memories.

During the construction phase of the mine when I lived at Camp 6 at Loloho, we received with our weekly towel change a new piece of CAMAY soap, whether we had used up the old one or not. Usually we hadn't and there was CAMAY soap all over the camp.

A certain surveyor would collect all the CAMAY soap he could get his hands on and also regularly empty the crib rooms of all their LIPTON tea-bags and ARNOTT'S Scotch Finger biscuits all of which he would parcel up and send to his family in Perth.

If you have ever been to Perth and seen a family with a lovely complexion and an aversion to LIPTON tea and ARNOTT'S Scotch Finger biscuits, you will know whom I talking about ☺
