As part of PNGDF border patrols in enforcing GoPNG presence along the PNG/RI border, a patrol from Support company, 1RPIR conducted patrol along the bulge area of Fly River last month. Border Meridian Monuments within this area are located on the eastern bank of the bulge. One such monument is MM 11A. In an attempt to raise the PNG flag here, a member of the patrol scaled up dried bamboo poles and hoisted the our national flag above the monument.
