Concerns have been raised over whether the PC brigade have been involved in the expansion of our war memorial at Kokoda.

At the start of the track at Owers Corner, 4 interpretative panels have been erected, but have dropped the word mateship in favour of friendship.

Australia’s war effort on the track has always been referred to by four words: Courage, Endurance, Mateship and Sacrifice as displayed on the marble pillar memorial at Isurava,a major battle site.
