On behalf of our merry band of Government House trekkers, thank you for a great trip over the Kokoda Track.
We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience which in no small way was due to your detailed planning and effective leadership.
Your passion and detailed knowledge brought the military history of the campaign to life and enabled us to satisfy the goals of the journey.
I think we were all impressed with your genuine affection for the local people and the practical way in which you are driving the much needed assistance programs.
As I mentioned on the Track, our group is keen to become involved in some small way with helping the local community. It would seem that Andy Ndiki at Naduri would be ideal. We look forward to hearing in due course, how we can help.
Again, from all of us in the Government House team, Adelaide, thankyou for a memorable experience on the Kokoda Track.
With best wishes
Rear Admiral Kevin Scarce AC CSC RANR, Governor of South Australia.
