DearRobyn, I worked for Patair from 1965 to 69 and flew Bert many times in and out of Kokoda. My wife and I have just been going over some old slides which have just come into my possession after being lost for over 30 years and I was at the 25th return to Kokoda ceremony and have two shots of Bert with two PNG men who were with him on the trail. I'll send you one of these if you wish? I always felt that I was in the presence of someone special when I was with Bert. So many memories of Kokoda as I did 108 arr/dept there during the above. I'll get hold of your book and read it with great interest. Best wishes Garry Romano.

Good on you, Robyn, about time the story was told properly.

I have been an avid reader of the Kokoda campaign and often wondered about Bert Kienzle.

I personally thank you for story it has been very informative.
