In the early 1960's I was in Jesselton, then North Borneo, and a friend of Tom Belina. I worked at the radio station and wrote for the Sabah Times. Tom, I believe, had a background in journalism, and we travelled down to the Indonesian border together to gather information. We also climbed Mount Kina Balu together. Then, most of us were flown out of the country in an 'emergency' but the Americans would not fly out their Peace Corps. I believe Tom and his colleagues built a raft and sailed across to Singapore. Unfortunately, because of this we lost touch. Tom must now be in his late 60's. I am in my early 60.s and would like to get in touch with Tom to find out what he did with his life. I continued to write for magazines and radio over here and now paint, write and create minituria - and am heavily into green issues/conservation.
If there is any chance of you sending a contact address or email address for Tom, I would be very grateful. He will probably remember me.
Thanking you in advance,
