I recently stumbled upon a well visited website, Robs PNG Links Dreambook, in which former PNG residents reminisce about their happy childhood days here.

I posted a note on this website, asking for contributions from former Lae residents about Lae in the 50s, 60s, and 70s.

Jim Dudgeon, once a projectionist at the Huon Theatre, emerged from the mists of time with some amazing anecdotes about this institution.

I was attending the Lae High School at the time, he said.

This was my very first job and I did it for the first year for free, as I liked it so much.

My father was Bob Dudgeon.

He was the Forman Mechanic with Government Transport in Lae.

I arrived in Lae as a baby in 1950, attended the Lae Primary A School, and Lae High School.

Had several jobs in Lae, bought the first GL Subaru in 1972, it got written off in Mt Hagen by one of my friends at the time.

I went south in 1973, so I had 23 years in Lae.
