I was in Bougainville from 1969 - 1970 for about 12 months. I went there with Gerhardt Korn who was there for about 6 months, we were both from Germany and had met in Syndey in the 60s. I believe that he has a holiday place in Batemans Bay.
I returned to Sydney in 1970 and then met and married a New Zealander. We have been resident in Auckland, New Zealand for some years now.
