    Background: Another junket from Phnom-Penh into the countryside, this time to give donations of money to local village leaders on Highway Three, and to give out various promotions and medals to serving officers and men in the area. He symbolically resented three rifles to civilian defence force irregulars, and then spoke at length about civilian responsibility in Cambodia at a time of war. Good point to mention extraordinary security (most of it unfilmable because of weather and low cloud - several helicopters constrain overhead, and many troops along the route and around the immediately area)
