Operation Order for 1954 Royal Visit


In 2013, FQPM Committee Member Wayne Coyne presented the QPM Curator with a bound copy of the Queensland Police Operation Order for the 1954 visit to Queensland of Her Majesty, the Queen. The document was a legacy from Wayne’s father, Andrew Coyne QPM, who served with distinction in the Queensland Police. Additionally, a signed letter by the then Commissioner John Smith was included. This presentation is very significant, in terms of the Queensland Police operational history.

Fashion Accessories


In March 2013 a man who claimed to be a Tahitian prince was sentenced to 14 years imprisonment for defrauding the Queensland Government of more than $16 million. Property that was bought with the proceeds of the crimes was seized from the man and later sold at auction. Two fashion accessories were obtained from the auction and donated to the QPM.

Police Ceremonial Items


FQPM member Wayne Coyne donated Mounted Police ceremonial items from his late father’s collection. Sergeant Andy Coyne QPM was a long time member of the Queensland Police Mounted Unit. The items consist of a metal two piece badge that is fitted on a baldric (a belt worn over one shoulder that is typically used to carry a weapon or other implement such as a bugle or drum), a ceremonial epaulette and an officer’s epaulette with an aguillette attached.
