Pacific Island Shipping Company

I am researching for an article on the Pacific Island Shipping Company Ltd., which was active around New Guinea during early 1970s. If anyone has any background/history, information and/or photos please contact me. Thank You. Also images of the small Shell tanker that was a regular caller at Anewa Bay during the same period.

New Guinea Express Lines (REL). 1970s era Australia/New Guinea Service with their Moresby Express, Lae Express, and subsequent ships. History/background/images sought.

Many Thanks
