Fifthly, I have conducted research on the Papua New Guineans aspects of World War II and have written 25 different research papers on the Kokoda Trail Battle.
From this research, I have found that more than 1,200 Orokaivan natives worked as carriers out of the total 5,000 carriers during the Kokoda Trail Battle along the track between Kokoda and Ilolo near Sogeri.
I have also discovered that 530 native carriers died of wounds, sickness, cold, hunger, and from the Japanese brutalities between Oivi Ridge and Ilolo between July and November 1942.
