RARE MUSEUM FIND
11 March 2007
Carolyn Newton and her husband, keen readers of The Mail, were in Rabaul aboard the Oceanic Discoverer at the same time Ingrid and I were there on the Orion last October. Unlike us, though, Carolyn visited the old New Guinea Club museum, where she took the accompanying photo. It commemorates Gough Whitlam’s notorious 1969 visit to Rabaul with an image of the great man and some words of mine crafted for some other occasion. I must say, at the vibrant age of 62, the last thing I expected was to find myself in a museum.
