Britain left its section to Australia in 1902, which eventually administered the whole area until independence, though it is still part of the British Commonwealth.

The nation of Papua New Guinea achieved its independence from Australia on 16 September 1975. The new country became a constitutional monarchy with membership of the British Commonwealth.

Papua New Guinea, officially the Independent State of Papua New Guinea, is an Oceanian country that occupies the eastern half of the island of New Guinea and its offshore islands in Melanesia, a region of the south-western Pacific Ocean north of Australia. Its capital, located along its south-eastern coast, is Port Moresby. The western half of New Guinea forms the Indonesian provinces of Papua and West Papua.

My uncle did not forget--a supply of tobacco, coarse grained powder, and amadou, nor a leathern belt in which he carried a sufficient quantity of gold, silver, and paper money.
