An aeroplane where it had rested since WWII in the tropics of Papua New Guinea, in the Lae - Madang area.
A camping trip was organized by a magistrate who was very much at home with his life as an Australian 'kiap' and with his wife and family in Madang. The group gathered in a village before taking on the treck into the tall kuni grass and the waters of the Ramu river and into areas of occuption by the armed forces long ago.
