Reluctant Rambo by Jim Austin

From 1985 1987 I was an active member of the Royal Papua New Guinea Police Force. It was at a time when law and order was at a low ebb. Criminals owned the night and theft, murder and rape was rampant. The stone age was butting heads with civilization and the result was chaos. Tribal fighting had been a way of life in Papua New Guinea for the past millennium or so and the advent of towns, schools and government did not take the fighting nature of the people or their peculiar brand of tribalism into consideration. The regular police were mostly ineffective. Myself and ten other expatriate men joined the inaugural reserve police force of 50 or so in Mt. Hagen, the capital city of the Western Highlands Province, known predictably, as the "Wild West".
