Ivan Iroro emailed from Papua New Guinea:


I am a Bougainvillian and was a small boy at that time of construction days, I grew up and went to international school at Panguna in 1973 my father was a employment supervisor By the name of James Iroro. I am surprised to see that people like you are still recalling the good old days at Bougainville.

I am sending photos of Old Kieta Harbour and what Kieta harbour looks like now and also Loloho beach in the eighties. It’s a bit blurry but it will recall back some of the old memories back.

I would like to share stories from people whom have worked here on Bougainville Island, here is my Gmail address; iroroivan[AT] and also my company email address: ivan.iroro[AT]

Thank you very much and hear from you soon.
