Jeff occasionally travels to Manus and
Los Negros Island for work, and takes photographs of WWII relics
locations. All photos 2003 by Jeff Hutchinson, used with premission.
|Wharf& PBY Base
The PNGDF headquarters on Manus is built on
the site of the wartime PBY and overhaul base.
& Aircraft Wreckage
Pieces of aircraft left in a dump and the bush
on Los Negros Island. In subsequent visits, these pieces have
disappeared, either from scrapping or people trying to buy them.
It seems like nearly every house has a gun or helmet from the
Americans that have been dug up or found. There is a story of
a jeep dug up about 10 years ago, that still runs today on Manus!
