Rest in peace Faole Bokoi, the last ‘Fuzzy Wuzzy Angel’. During World War II, when Australian troops fought in the rough terrain of Papua New Guinea against the invading Japanese, a group of locals, known affectionately as the Fuzzy Wuzzies, helped the Aussie soldiers defend their country. One of their most selfless acts was to carry wounded Aussie soldiers out of the harsh terrain of the Kokoda Track to hospitals . The legend of the ‘Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels’ came to light when soldiers began sending poems and letters to their families back home mentioning the Angels.
