Microfiche of government patrol reports for various provinces in Papua New Guinea. Most of the reports were written after
1945 and prior to Papua New Guinea's independence in 1975. Provinces represented in the collection include: Central Province,
North Solomons Province (Bougainville), Chimbu Province (Simbu), Eastern Highlands Province, East New Britain Province, West
New Britain Province, East Sepik Province, West Sepik Province, Gulf Province, Madang Province, Manus Province, Milne Bay
Province, Morobe Province, New Ireland Province, Northern Province, Southern Highlands Province, Western Province, and the
Western Highlands and Enga.
There is a supplementary index to the collection, which provides greater description of each patrol report and access to the
patrol reports by way of the writer's name and the name of the area patrolled.
The microfiche was filmed by the National Archives of Papua New Guinea, with support from the University of California, San
Diego. The microfiche and this guide are the results of a cooperative project between the National Archives of Papua New
Guinea, and the Melanesian Studies Resource Center (MSRC) at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD).
