When HA Bill Johnson asked Natmapper Guy Rosenberg to transfer to Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, to support David Cook, then Natmap's PNG Resident Surveyor for the Geodetic Survey, Guy accepted. Guy then spent 1961-1964 in PNG on the geodetic survey. On Christmas Day 1963 Guy along with Ed Burke and Ron Scott enjoyed a white Christmas on the summit (approximately 15000ft) of Mt Wilhelm. This rare event made the front page of PNG's newspaper of the time the South Pacific Post. Guy, who is now living back in his native France, has generously provided photographs of his time in PNG which may be viewed via this link.
