  • Description

    MEMBERS OF THE FIRST MALAYSIAN SECURITY FIELD FORCE ARE HIGHLY RESPECTED IN THE RICH COASTAL OIL-TOWN OF MIRI, NORTHERN SARAWAK. THEIR WORK: INTERCEPTING INDONESIAN INFILTRATORS AND FERRETING THEM OUT OF CLANDESTINE COMMUNIST ORGANISATIONS.

    THE MALAYSIAN SECURITY FIELD FORCE HAS BEEN IN MIRI FOR QUITE SOME TIME NOW. THEY WERE RUSHED TO THIS TOWN FOLLOWING THE INCREASE OF COMMUNIST ACTIVITIES IN THE AREA SOON AFTER THE FORMATION OF MALAYSIA.

    THEY WORK SIDE BY SIDE WITH BRITISH TROOPS.

    THE AREAS THEY PATROL ARE RUGGED MOUNTAIN TERRAINS AND JUNGLES. THIS, HOWEVER, IS NO PROBLEM TO THEM AS THEY HAVE HAD SIMILAR EXPERIENCE IN MALAYA DURING THE EMERGENCY.

    MEMBERS OF THE FORCE HAD SEVERAL ENCOUNTERS WITH INDONESIAN INSURGENTS IN THE COURSE OF THEIR OPERATIONS. THEY ARE CONFIDENT OF CARRYING OUT THEIR DUTIES EFFICIENTLY IN DEFENDING MALAYSIA AGAINST INCREASED INDONESIAN HOSTILITY.
