19. The Downside of Weekend Outings in PNG, 1964

The mission personnel in Aitape were very gregarious and hospitable - Friday night was Five Hundred night up at St. Anna. Just as well there was no gambling otherwise the good friars would have reduced their guests to penury. A bad road recently drenched by heavy rain didn't put us off a visit to Pes Mission. We arrived in time for lunch, though looking a little less than spick and span. From left: Bruce Jeans, TIC of Aitape PTS; Kevin Goodwin, a businessman/builder; and Gus Bottrill, ADO.
