The Northern Territory Police Museum & Historical Society organised the unveiling of a commemorative plaque by Commissioner Paul White on Saturday, 8 November 2003.
This event is took place at the roadside stop at Attack Creek, 72 kilometres north of Tennant Creek at 10am. Wreaths were laid, the Police Chaplain blessed the site and the plaque was unveiled.
Representatives from the NT Government, Opposition, Tennant Creek Council, NT Police Association, Retired Police Association of the Northern Territory and the NT Police Museum & Historical Society layed wreaths at the event.
Members of the public were invited to attend this event.
The reason behind the unveiling of the plaque is detailed below.
The truth will probably never be known. Two different versions of events have evolved as to why a Mounted Constable, five European males and two Aboriginal Trackers conducted a searched north of Tennant Creek. Only two returned.

    We stayed here in June 2014 for an overnight stop. It was just after 3.00pm and already there were about 24 vans/motorhomes parked here. By nightfall there were about 40 rigs here, parked along the edge of the two sealed loop roads. There is plenty of room to drive around parked rigs. The area has a toilet, some undercover tables and benches at one end and a water tank with the usual uncertain quality water.
