    I read Bill James book "Field Guide to the Kokoda Track". it gives a great historical perspective about kokoda and New Guinea during ww11. As well it gives to todays trekkers practical information and great maps that are excellent to reference during the trek. recommended.

    Wow, Mike. Your poem gave me goosebumps. I was almost crying just reading it – and I haven't even trekked Kokoda yet. Truly have some talent there. May I have your permission to print this out to frame and put on my office wall? (I understand if I don't – poetry is very personal…)

    thanks fluppy,
    i would be honoured if you thought my poem was good enough to put on your wall.
    thanks also for pointing out the typo it should indeed say indeed.
    i have written a couple of other poems…. trying not to make them too emotional but
    more acurate to historical occurrances , easier for people to learn about
    the history than reading a book?
    cheers mike

    Mike, a WOW from me also and like Fluppy I too had goosebumps reading your poem, well done.

    With your approval, I would love to print it out and have our boys read it at Brigade Hill when they walk with trekkers.

    If you have written other poems like this for various points on the track would love to have them as well.
