I came across some more pictures from Bougainville. I don't know if you want to put them up on your website - I think they may be of interest to some (otherwise I obviously would not be even writing this! LOL)
I think the way they are named tells you all I know about the pictures and the people in them! There are a couple of pics where I cannot recall a few of the blokes names - it'd be GREAT if some peeps could ID them and fill in the blanks for me! For example, the chap with Merle Lovell on pic attachment number 4 ... I am sure his name was " Ib" and he was Danish, or somewhere close by there.I don't remember his full name - but that poor guy had something so horrible done to him whilst he was passed out cold - drunk, by a bunch of other drunk blokes, that he actually never drank again whilst he was there ... and if it had been me, I would have done exactly what he did. What happened to him was supposed to be funny - and it certainly was NOT (these so called grown men stuck a piece of kabana in his bum). Anyway, Ib was a really lovely bloke ... have always wondered where in the world he ended up.
I've resized the photo's, so that they don't take up a humungus amount of space. I just hope the quality does not suffer overly much.
Let me know if you want to use them?
