MIA: That the lost may be found

SHOP:978147819119

This is a true life adventure of the discovery of a Second World War Australian Lockheed Hudson bomber that had been missing for 66 years in the jungles of Papua New Guinea.

To have lost a loved one, a brother, daughter, father or son during a war is a tragedy. How can we really understand the pain? But to receive a report that they are Missing in Action (MIA) is equally, if not more, heart-wrenching. The agonising thoughts of what might have happened never go away no matter how many years have passed. It affects many, not only the immediate family but also aunts and uncles, cousins and friends. With unending hope, they imagine that their loved one had survived and resumed a life somewhere else. Their hope never diminishes, and the pain never goes away, even with the passing of time.

Soft cover, photographs, 340 pages.
