I had Joe Nombri with me compiling the Common Roll (1967 was it?) in the Saruwaget Mountains north of Lae. The most enjoyable, at times hilarious, patrol I ever did.

OK, Joseph Nombri too. See if I can put something together.

What would be really good Mathias is something about Joe Nombri. I worked with him in the 1960s.

Phil, hopefully we will get New Guineans writing of their experiences in colonial New Guinea.

In Simbu we had the Nilkares, the late Sir Joseph Nombri, the late Jerry Gerry, Kimin Poka, Henry Tokam and many others (all kiaps) who served very well among the Australian kiaps. Sadly all did not write of their experiences.

I have a story line on John Mua Nilkare. I will put this out as soon as I have reviewed at it.
