Torres Strait Islands

Welcome To The Torres Strait Islands Community

by Kitty Jellinek
Senior Sergent David Joachim of Gold Coast District inherited a treasure trove of photo slides and artifacts from his father, who worked in the Torres Strait Islands during the 1950’s. Realizing their historic value, he converted the aging slides to digital images with the help of the QPS Photographic Section and gifted them as a slide show to the QPS and the Torres Strait Island community for posterity. Please be patient and give the slide show a little time to load. Click in the right hand bottom corner to view in full screen mode.
