Brief overview of Macquarie's punitive expeditions, followed by a proclamation ordering the end of hostilities; introduction of the annual gathering of 'Chiefs' in 1816 at which 'badges of distinction' were conferred; the first recorded gorget given by Macquarie was to Bungaree; under Governor Thomas Brisbane, Alexander Berry issued gorgets and a Constable's plate to his guide Broughton; gorgets were a means by which soldiers and convicts could identify leaders; discusses use of terminology and change of title from 'chief' to 'king' and use of the term 'king plates'; lists names of many of the recipients of gorgets and king plates during this early period in and around Sydney
