Morning Bob, another great story.

I actually did some research among the people after hearing of this incident. I interviewed some old people and also was surprised to read of it in The Big Road.

My version is included in my Simbu history book. I was to post it here but you beat me to it.

The name of the hill village on which the bomb exploded killing hundreds of people was changed to Bomkop meaning bomb mountain after the explosion.

This place is near the Lutheran mission Monono.

Thank you again Bob

Another great story, Bob. I read about the Chuave bomb in your book, 'The Big Road'. But this one is in finer detail. Its certainly a good piece of history for Chuave and Simbu people. Thanks Bob.

Bob, what a great piece of history for the records. I lived in Chuave for three years in the late 60's but was unaware of the Elimbari bombs. I think your new nick-name should be "the ghost who walks"!
