Hi Anthony - I knew both your parents but I did not attend a course in Sydney with your father in 1967.

I was transferred from the Sepik to Bougainville in June 1966 and, apart from periods of leave, remained there until June 1973.

Your father was ADO (Assistant District Officer) Lumi during 1961-1962. I was at Wewak and Maprik during that time. We were together at meetings, conferences etc and met socially at weddings etc.

Hi Bill - I am enquiring if you did a six month refresher course in Sydney in the latter half of 1967 along with my father, Brian McCabe?

This is a most interesting site.

I came across it while trying to find & locate my boyhood friend, Lawrence Ashley Meintjies. Last trace of him is that he was an Assistant District Officer in New Ireland during 1971. He seems to have been known as Laurie.

Does anyone know his present whereabouts or where I might look next.

Any help would be much appreciated.

I have advised James of Laurie's email - KJ

Wonderful to hear from the redoubtable Kurt Pfund - a brilliant colourful painting of his still hangs on our wall, and I recall the wonderful hospitality he provided up the Rouna Road.

His exhibitions were renowned, and and I suspect that likewise his love life was decidedly more colourful than mine.
