The advance party of 2/14th Battalion heads off up Kokoda Track, led by bh Intelligence Officer Capt Stan Bisset and CO Col Arthur Key.
The unit’s beloved Salvation Army officer Capt Albert Moore heads off with them. He stops the group and takes a photo of them, using his camera's timer. It will be the last photo ever taken of Arthur Key.
Back at Deniki, the 39th is fighting its way back down the Track to establish a new defensive position at the village of Isurava, a perfect natural jungle citadel with steep banks down to creeks on both sides and a commanding view of the surrounding terrain.
