Sgt Alan Collyer and a small team from 39th Bn sails from Moresby in the schooner Gili Gili carrying B Coy’s stores, headed for Buna, where it will deliver the stores to be picked up by B Coy after it travels up the Kokoda Track.

Meanwhile, B Coy spends 10th day, now training in full marching order, but still stranded at McDonald’s Corner.
