Norm Webster (17 April 2016, aged 87 years)
Norm was born in Queensland on the 26th of October 1928. He was not a kiap but he knew all of our many and varied foibles from his various postings in the 1950’s with Treasury, Department of Health and many years at Regional Local Government Office, Madang. Madang as Local Government auditor travelling to Councils throughout New Guinea Mainland Region. He could wield the auditor’s green pen with precise and terrifying efficiency. His visits to outstations were always welcome and refreshing. Always precise and well organised. Somebody at Regloc Madang once asked what they would like to have with them in the event of a disaster – the rapid response was “Norm’s briefcase” knowing that all of the survival essentials would be neatly arranged within.
His wife, Patricia, predeceased him. He is survived by children Margaret and Michael and their families.
