    Default My First Forward Control

    This is a FC 2A I found in Bougainville back in 1972. It belonged to the Catholic mission but got abandoned and left to the natives.
    Wife and I bought it and towed it back to Kieta.

    I have lost the original slides somewhere and some were copied to Photobucket and some Flickr.
    You will just have to bear with me if you want to.
    I went to Mt Hagen in PNG as a Didiman bilong bulamacau (Stock Inspector) back in 1969. Then after a couple of years transferred to Kavieng out in the Islands ( New Ireland) Got married and built a 38 ft Ferro Cement Ketch in my spare time. Later transferred to Bougainville where this story starts.
