Lae geographical coordinates in the 1930s

I am doing some historical research and hope someone may be able to help.
I am hoping that someone may have details of the exact latitude and longitude of Lae (or better still the old airfield) as understood in the 1930s. I am well aware of the actual position as accurately measured today but I would like to know if there was any discrepancy in apparent position as measured before the war. Any help would be much appreciated.
regards Angus Murray
