It is sad, Frank was a really nice bloke, very unruffled, very easy going, very modest.   Also kind to younger  kiaps !        Peter Johnson

Frank, was a congenial, good-natured man and an excellent kiap! It is indeed sad to hear about his death.      David Wall

Frank FAULKNER (22nd December 2012 aged 75 years)

Frank first went to Papuan New Guinea in 1957 as a cadet patrol officer. He
was initially assigned to the Milne Bay District with later postings to the

Madang Sepik, and Central Districts. He finally left the service in 1975 with
the rank of District Officer.
In subsequent years Frank returned to Papua New Guinea and worked in
community liaison roles for mining companies at Lihir and Porgera. He was
also latterly employed as a camp manager by Oilmin Field Services Pty Ltd
which serviced international petroleum exploration companies operating in
the Southern Highlands and Gulf Provinces.

In betwixt field assignments Frank liked to frequent the ski resorts in Colorado
and Europe, or scuba dive in the Mediterranean and the Bahamas.

In retirement Frank resided in Angeles City in the Philippines.

Frank Faulkner was a genial, well informed and interesting person. He will be
missed by his many friends.
