READING COMPREHENSION TEST # 5  

MEDAL PARADE

On 7th August 2009 the Australian UN Police Contingent held their Medal Parade in the function room at Timor Hotel in Dili.  The Contingent consisted of 50 Australian police officers, however due to leave’s and other commitments, only 43 of the contingent were available for the parade.

The contingent had a final rehearsal for the parade at 0900 hours and guests arrived at 0930 hours.  The master of ceremonies for the parade was Peter Morgan.  Official guests included the SRSG, UNPOL Commissioner, the PNTL General Commander, the Australian Ambassador and representatives from the Australian Federal Police.

During the parade, recipients received the United Nations Medal for Timor Leste and those who had completed additional service received the numeral two or three.  Each person also received a Timorese traditional tais in the same colors as the medal.  This was placed around the neck of each recipient by the UNPOL Commissioner.  Two Timorese Language Assistants also assisted during the ceremony.

Speeches were given by the Australian Contingent Commander, the SRSG and the UNPOL Commissioner.  The UNPOL Commissioner made special mention of UNPOL Donna White, the Oecussi District Commander.  The Commissioner commended her for her commitment to preparing the district for handover back to the PNTL which had occurred on 1st July 2009.  The Commissioner also thanked UNPOL Simon Brown for his work in relation to improving human rights conditions at the Dili Watch House.

During the parade it was acknowledged that Australian Police had been participating in UN Peacekeeping missions since the Cyprus mission which commenced in 1964.  Australia still contributes police to the mission in Cyprus.  It was further noted that Australians had been participating in UN missions in Timor Leste since 1999 and that they also contribute police to the UN Integrated mission in Sudan.

The medal parade was followed by morning tea served in the foyer of the hotel.  The Australian contingent later met for lunch at Discovery restaurant in Bidau.

At 1330hrs the contingent formed up at the new Presidential Palace to be presented with the Timor Leste Solidarity Medal.  The medal was awarded in recognition of the contribution made by personnel since 2006.  This medal was presented to each recipient by the President of Timor Leste.  This was the first ceremony of this type to be held inside the newly inaugurated Presidential Palace.
