Lest We Forget:September 16 2018 is the 75th anniversary of the recapture of Lae by Australian troops in 1943 from the Japanese.
This makes this year's Independence celebrations in Lae very special.
We hope Australia, Papua New Guinea, Lae and Morobe will make that day a memorable one.
Our young people must know the rich and colourful history of our hometown.
A place with no past has no future.
