Ross,

Thank you. The photographs & text provide an interesting insight into the Naval expedition & military occupation.
To think that this territory (German New Guinea) was mandated to Australia thanks in part to William Morris Hughes abrasive stance at Versailles.

So many Australians worked (& many died) in New Guinea from 1915 right through to 1975, & some even beyond independence.
