    Yes, that sure is the young, handsome Dave Wall I knew in New Guinea.

    Sue, thanks, your photos bring back memories. Is that Sandy’s leg and shoe to the left? Best wishes to you and Rudi, Dave

    Hi Sue,
    I am Gerard (Gelhart) Manggal and am very keen to know your whereabouts as well as Mark’ and Marina’s.

      Hello Gelhart,
      It is so great to hear from you! Marc will be thrilled. He lives in Maryborough Qld and Marina lives with me, here in Cairns, Nth Qld.
      My good friends Anna Chu Leong and Sava Maksic both live in Cairns too.
      Hearing from you reminds me of all the good old days in the Sepik.
      Here is Marina’s email so you can let us know how things are going in your life and how to contact you.
      Cheers & Best Wishes from all of us.
      Sue Treutlein

        Does anyone have Sue’s contact details still? I used to go to school with Marina and Mark in Pomona, I was best friends with Marina. It would be great to reconnect with them.
