Solomon Islands Police awarded UN Peacekeeping medal
8:03 pm GMT+12, 28/05/2017, Solomon Islands

Five Solomon Islands Police working  as United Nations peacekeepers in Darfur, Sudan, have been awarded the prestigious UN Peacekeepers Medals.
 
In what was described as an historic and emotional ceremony, the five, who are the first ever Solomon Islands contingent to win the medals, were recognised by the UN last week.
 
Police Commissioner Matthew Varley congratulated the officers for their “hard work, dedication and courage”. “I am proud of the significant contribution that the Solomon Islands Contingent has made in the service of peace in Darfur,” he said.
 
The five men end their tour of duty in September.
