“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.

“My mother died in Australia while I was in second year high school, my father died in 1982 - I think.

“I now live in a small town in Queensland called Warra, my brother Stan lives in Rochedale, and my youngest brother lives in Brisbane.

Mr Dudgeon, in those very early years of the Huon Theatre, was its assistant projectionist.

“… I began at the Huon Theatre while I was at High School,” he recalls.

“Did a full year without pay because I loved it so much.

“Went on to do the Friday and Saturday night sessions for several years, which were the best nights of the week.

“The only blew I ever made was to begin the main feature film one night in the middle of a cowboy shoot ‘em up film.

“The second reel had been placed back in the load box the night before in the wrong position.

“We stopped the film, found the correct reel and began again.

“The audience seemed to like it, and had a good old laugh.

“We were told to not do it again.
