my name is Joe Grech. I was at Bougainville from 1973 to 1976. I was employed as a diesel mechanic by Shell Oil Co Pacific. I worked mainly at Loloho at the depot but I also did fuel deliveries to Panguna mine and the airport at Kieta. I had a house at Arawa but after a week I moved in to the camp at Loloho Bay. I am 61 now and those 3 years were the best years of my life.

Kind Regards
