Vale Jim Toner (6 November 2019)
Vale Jim Toner, formerly of Darwin, Northern Territory. Jim was a regular contributor to our quarterly journal over many years. Everyone looked forward to his friendly humour and laconic style. Jim was a District Office kuskus (clerk) – well known and highly regarded by the Kiaps – and part of a unique era that contributed so much to the Australian development of Papua New Guinea. He will be greatly missed and our thoughts are with Mary Toner at this sad time. Jim’s funeral will be on Wednesday 20 November 2019 at Thorak Cemetery Chapel, 95 Deloraine Rd, Knuckey Lagoon NT at 11:00 AM. Please pass this information on.
