  2. Did you have an email address at which you can be contacted? I am currently trying to track down archive images from the Malayan Emergency and this would be perfect!

  3. Fantastic photoes Jon, Very nostalgic, reminds me of my young days in Ladang Geddes where my father was posted as a Policeman. Our barrack was located next to the forward army camp where units of the Commonwealth take their turn to operate in the nearby jungle. There was an occasion where a battery of guns were deployed in front of the Police Barrack where we stayed. It was terrible ,as they fired their guns incessently to demoralize the CTs in the sorounding jungle. Just wondered whether you were there. Almost every day dead CTs were brought to the police station by the military for disposal. Personally I would like to thank you and those soldiers from the Commonwealth who had participated in hunting down the CTs. Thank you for your sacrifice mate.
