I have received a note from reader Bill Stephens including two interesting photographs.
They are the obverse and reverse of an unusual medallion given to his late father Arthur (Bluy) Stephens in 1972.
Arthur was the Port Moresby-based Mining Warden in the Department of Land, Surveys and Mines in Papua New Guinea in the 1960s and 1970s.
The medallion was presented to him by an outfit called the ‘Cape Vogel Anuki Prospecting Society’.
It bears the names of the society president Abihud Sinokua as well as the secretary, treasurer, chief prospector and cook (good to see the poor bloody cook recognised).
