Good the saying goes: 'The first comes last and the last goes first'. You experiences seemed to fall along this line.

My experience in joining the Public Service is similar to yours. I was a villager for 11 months. There was also a tribal fight that cut us off from the provincial capital (Kundiawa). Through 'Post Courier' given by a mobile squad friend I applied for a position in the public service. But the worst part was I could not post the application away because the provincial capital was located in the enemterritory so I had to cross over the Bismarck Range from Simbu on foot to Bundi, then to Brahman and on PMV to Madang and got my application posted the next day. I got the job anyway, but the hard way.

Thanks for this story, Keith.
