ABC Kokoda Documentary

So an email here from Peter a frequent visitor to the blog.

Dear Emmanuel

You might know that the ABC has recently broadcast a 2 part documentary on the Kokoda campaign. 

It can now be viewed on-line at - haunting and beautiful sound track was composed by David Bridie.

While very good, I feel the documentary does not give sufficient coverage to the local PNG people who were involved – after all it was their country.

It does not even mention the Papuan Infantry Battalion who gave sterling service in scouting, guerrilla action and intelligence gathering.  See -

Their decorations included –
* 1 Distinguished Service Orders (DSO)
* 3 Military Crosses (MC)
* 1 George Medals (GM)
* 3 Distinguished Conduct Medals (DCM)
* 15 Military Medals (MM)
* 3 Mentioned in Despatches (MID)
