The volume centers around village, plantation, and native labor inspections, tax collection, and census taking in the Gulf District, Kerema, 1936-1937. Officers held Court for Native Matters, recruitments, and distributed prizes for village contests. Patrols were made by whaleboat or canoe. Each report remarks on the harsh weather of the rainy season; flooding and erosion are mentioned often. There are many references made to local flora and fauna, as well as illness and disease. A selection of native vocabulary is included in report number 8.
During July 2018, UC San Diego undergraduate students conducted a preliminary analysis of a few PNG Patrol Report volumes. Students were assigned one volume to analyze at the report level summarizing their findings, identifying key terms, and writing aboutness statements.
