IN MAY 1963 my late wife Garda together with John and Margaret Paynter went to the Mt Hagen Show.
At that time, we were all schoolies in Goroka.
It was a pleasant and uneventful trip made in the Paynter’s small Toyota Tiara car.
On the Daulo pass, we stopped to say G’day to Sparrow Clinton who was on a grader repairing road damage.
At Hagen the four of us slept in the District Commissioner’s office, I believe without his consent.
