United Nations Cap

This United Nations Cap belonged to a Queensland Police Officer who went to Cyprus as part of the 6th contingent of peacekeepers who served during 1969-1970.

The UNCIVPOL or United Nations Civilian Police consists of Police officers from across the world. During the Cyprus crisis, civilian police were supplied by several countries, including Australia. Thirty-nine of the Australians came from Queensland Police. The Civilian Police became known as UNFICYP, meaning United Nations (Police Peacekeeping) Forces in Cyprus.

The United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) is a United Nations peacekeeping force. It was established under United Nations Security Council Resolution 186 in 1964 to prevent a recurrence of fighting following inter-communal violence between the Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots and to maintain law and order.
