RPNGC Legacy has a website if any of you former RPNGC (Field Branch) Officers wish to check it out.
You may even wish to become Life Members, like one of our few Canadian ex Kiaps, Rhys Carpenter, now resident in the U.S., whom I met at Obiemi Base Camp in 1973 or 4, when I walked over from nearby Mt. Bosavi.
K1500 (These days a little over A$500, gets you a nice Certificate signed by Police Legacy Patron and Constabulary Commandant, His Excellency Sir Michael Ogio GCL KCMG KSt.J PSM, Governor General of Papua New Guinea, and that nice warm feeling when you contribute to a good cause, the education and support of necessitous children whose Father or Mother is deceased whilst serving the Constabulary.
The main Website, which can be found by googling RPNGC Police Legacy, contains a number of interesting links to all sorts of things and parallel sites such as ; https://sites.google.com/site/rpngcpoli ... gc-history https://sites.google.com/site/rpngcpoli ... ial-awards
The Historical Section is being added to daily and includes interesting stuff like photographs of Policemen over the decades, and copies of various Newsletters published in the 1960's and 1970's, which is where I discovered that P.O. Lyn Clarke was arrowed in the Gulf Province's Hatha Gorge in 1951 and that one of our comrades, then an ADO, was awarded a NSW Police Commissioner's Commendation for his assistance, whilst he was on leave, to a NSW policeman. Find out who by having a gander.
To date most of the records and photographs relate to Regular Constabulary, but there is no reason why the Field Constabulary should not start to get a mention. Anyone who would like to contribute send your contributions to email@example.com
