Patrols of nine personnel operate on a rotational basis to Rove Prison. Their job is to guard the prison complex, which includes conducting random perimeter patrols. This is a portrait of seven members from RAMSI Rotation 17 on patrol at Rove Prison at Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands. The other two from this group were out on patrol when the artist visited.
