In 1968, the capital of Milne Bay Province, was moved from Samarai to its present location at Alotau, and the town is this year celebrating its 50th anniversary. Valued reader Arthur Smedley is assisting the organisers with historical research - and there are a few things you may be able to help with.
One is a copy of an article published in the Cameron High School magazine in the early 1970s. It was by Richard Jackson (no relation) and others and entitled, 'Alotau: a new town in Papua New Guinea. Arthur is also hoping to hear about your memories and stories and get hold of photographs. You can contact him here firstname.lastname@example.org
