The Photo That Nearly Put Me In Jail!

I was in Port Moresby (Papua New Guinea) to record the Band of the Papua New Guinea Police.

When completed, a site for suitable Photography was suggested which turned out to be local Prison Grounds.

Photograph taken which featured the Band Sgt. with Fanfare Trumpet - all seemed well until prison Guards demanded we follow them to their Guardroom where we were held until no less than the Chief Of Police himself authorized our release.

A strange way to end a recording I think you will agree!

    Well it was well over 40 years ago now, and things were
    a little “touchy” tixt the Constabulary and the prison service and clearly the prison guards took exception to what they regarded as unauthorized entry – even if the offender was a serving Police Sgt. – and that wasn’t helped with him having me as company – It certainly was an experience!
