New Photos of the MV Rabaul Queen Disaster
It’s been over seven months now since Peter Sharp’s overladen MV Rabaul Queen sank taking with it up to 400 Papua New Guineans. The tragedy is PNG’s worst maritime disaster and a Commission of Inquiry was launched into the capsizing and sinking of the MV Rabaul Queen.
