My father was a policeman, he used to work as an interpreter at Buna, he used to communicate, report, was at Margaret corner, my father used to say there was a machine gun at the place that was where the Army used to come and fight.
He was a village policeman not a carrier. At Manumu- Queen and Donald Cleland came. My father used to live in fear—my mother too had her own story- she used to take us to clinic.my father was happy doing what he used to do but was in great fear.
