George Silk, a photojournalist who spent 30 years
with 'Life' magazine and who shot one of the iconic images from Australia's
Kokoda Track campaign, has died, aged 87 in late 2004.
For Australians, Silk is perhaps best known for his photo of a New
Guinea nativ volunteer - one of the "Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels" -
tenderly helping a blinded Australian soldier George "Dick" Whittington
New Zealand-born Silk was said to be deeply affected by the image,
taken on Christmas Day, 1942.
