Hi. I was a resident of Rabaul in the late 1960s-early 1970s and a member of the PNGVR whilst there.

I have recently written an article about a member of the ANMEF on whom I did some research. I am interested in any tours that are being organised to visit Rabaul in September.

Hi Reg, Do you have email details for those involved in the commemorations, if you do, would you be able to pass them to myself at - in order to better perhaps coordinate and liase several activities that are being planned for the centenary in PNG by the Port Moresby Sub Branch of the Returned and Services League of Australia, Australian Department of Veterans Affairs and the Australian Defence Staff - Papua New Guinea.

Thanks Reg for this excellent article. It is great to hear of the work of the ANMEF & Rabaul Association.

This should go a long way to improving the understanding of students and others about what happened in the past in TPNG.

Best wishes for the ANMEF Centenary on 11 September 2014.
I have a copy of "How Australia Took German New Guinea - An Illustrated record By F.S.Burnell - which is very interesting.
