Peter - and Lae.

Talking of Andre Millar, I believe she laid out the botanical gardens and the University of PNG grounds. Still lovely after all these years.

William - you might remember my uncle, Keith Irvine, who was an avid orchid collector in PNG in the 1950s and 1960s. When Mum died we found a beautiful orchid on the front steps one day - left by Keith.

(PS. More dinosaurs to come)

Would it be impertinent to suggest that the Mt Wilhelm dinosaurs are now, and have been for a long time, living in the Haus Tambaran in Waigani and that all the timid plant eaters are currently being terrorized by Tyrannosaurus Pete.

The pigs are flying me home too, Peter.

Peter - At the first lake or the second. The late Andre Millar did a lot of orchid fossicking up there in the late 1960's. I supplied her transport.

The only dinosaur I spotted on the mountain was cadet patrol officer Howie Dreise, who climbed to the peak twice in two days at Easter 1965 - KJ

Ha! And dinosaurs are living on Mt Wilhelm (Yes they are.)
