Australian FM lays wreath at Port Moresby (Bomana) War Cemetery
05 December 2012
The Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr has paid tribute to the
Australians who died in the jungles of Papua New Guinea during the
Second World War.
Mr Carr laid a wreath at Port Moresby (Bomana) War Cemetery,
which contains the graves of more than 3,000 Australians - the
largest concentration of Australian war dead in the world.
The Port Moresby Memorial stands behind the cemetery and
commemorates almost 750 men of the Australian Army (including Papua
and New Guinea local forces), the Australian Merchant Navy and the
Royal Australian Air Force who lost their lives in the operations
in Papua and who have no known graves.
