Pictures By Bill Snell
Here are some pics of Site 22 and 25.
Site 22 was on the second highest mountain in New Guinea about sixty miles from Port Moresby.
Site 25 was on Prince of Wales Island next to Thursday Island right at the tip of Cape York, Australia. I was on both sites with Airmen Gayle Wymen and Bob West.
My last month at AST-7 was spent mostly on the LST USS Harris County helping the Navy helicopter crew service ground stations.
The ship dropped me off in Daru New Guinea and I was flown on a Cessna 172 about 150 miles north west of Daru to supervise the loading and move to Port Moresby of a decommissioned ground station. These pictures record the loading of the PATAIR DC-3. I can't remember the number of this site.
