John Carthew emailed from Lavington (Albury) N.S.W.:

I was there in 1971 working for Barclay Bros and have lots of memories, some sad but most good.

I am beginning to write my memoirs at the moment and I would like to source a few photos from the 1970s for illustrations in my book. I came home from Panguna with a shoebox full of picturess but two failed marriages later I'm left with just memories (no pictures). I think one of the darlings burnt the lot (as they do), so I will be asking you for permission to copy from your website a few relevant shots.

Thank you for keeping Bougainville alive in our hearts. I really was excited when I stumbled across your site.

Will send you a short story of my time on Buka very soon.
