New Ireland Island (PNG) Kavieng

New Ireland is the largest island of PNG's New Ireland Province, located northeast of New Britain Island. Both isles are part of Bismarck Archipelago- named after Otto von Bismarck (Otto Eduard Leopold, 1815-1898). They are separated by St George's Channel.

Island's administrative centre and main port town is Kavieng (at its northern end). While the island was part of German New Guinea, it was called Neumecklenburg ("New Mecklenburg"). During WW2 (1939-1945), in January 1942, the island was captured by Japanese forces.
