Anne Foldi was born on 15 December 1964 at Namanula Hospital in Rabaul. Her grandfather, John Foldi, was District Commissioner in East New Britain in the early 1960s. Anne left Rabaul when she was three months old.
Anne’s father, Ian Foldi, had gone back to Rabaul to manage a copra plantation after schooling in Charters Towers. Ian was tragically killed in a light plane crash in NSW in February 1976.
Anne, who was christened by the renowned Father Franke, says there was only one other baby, a girl, born at Namanula at the same time she was. “I am very curious and would love to know who she is and what her life has been like,” says Anne. “I would appreciate any ideas you might have to help me locate her.”
Now I know that many of our ASOPA colleagues were in the Gazelle at the time Anne was born. Can anyone assist? If you’d like to get in touch, you can contact Anne Foldi here.
