20. Dispensing Aspirin for Hed i Pen, 1964

In the Aitape hinterland at the back of the Torricellis quite a few of the older people didn't bother about clothes still. Here a Wanali Village man cadges a couple of aspirin off me while I was off during a term break walking round the Nuku area with Tony White, a mission teacher from the 5th E Course. (The ADO - or more correctly the Sub-District Clerk - wasn't very happy about me going off without his OK for this excursion during the school vacation as teachers were technically still classed as public servants then).
