In this unique film, Kiaps tell their stories of living and working in Papua New Guinea. There is also footage of the 2013 ceremony at Parliament House, Canberra, where Kiaps were awarded the Police Overseas Service Medal.
This outstanding DVD provides a powerful and poignant tribute to the world of the Kiaps. Shining through is the close relationship between the Kiaps and the Papua New Guinean Police whose loyalty they depended on.
Fascinating and entertaining Kiap: Stories Behind the Medal reflects on an era now long gone but which had such an extraordinary and lifelong impact on Australians living in Papua New Guinea prior to PNG independence. For more information, click on the DVD cover at left.
