  • Description

    TALKS CONTINUE IN BANGKOK IN AN EFFORT TO SETTLE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN MALAYSIA AND INDONESIA. MEANWHILE IN REMOTE, SPARSELY POPULATED DISTRICTS OF INLAND BORNEO AND SARAWAK BRITISH TROOPS ARE PATROLLING THE BORDER BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES.

    TO MANY OF THE NATIVES, THE PRESENCE OF THE BRITISH PATROLS COMES AS A BOON. THE DOCTORS INT HE CAPS TEND TO THE SICK AMONG THE TRIBESMEN, WHILE THE ARMY HELICOPTERS HAVE BEEN FREQUENTLY USED TO CARRY SERIOUSLY ILL NATIVES TO THE COMFORT OF A HOSPITAL.

    THE TROOPS TOO, ARE HAPPY TO HAVE THE TRIBESMEN AROUND. THE NATIVE WOMEN HELP THE SOLDIERS WITH THEIR WASHING AND COOKING, WHILE THE MEN SOMETIMES HELP IN REFUELING HELICOPTERS AND PROVIDING FRESH FRUITS FOR THE PATROLMEN.

    THE ANIMALS OF THE JUNGLE PROVIDE THE SOLDIERS WITH AMPLE AMUSEMENT DURING THEIR MOMENTS OF LEISURE.

    IN THE LAST TEN DAYS, HOWEVER, A NUMBER OF BITTER CLASHES HAVE BEEN REPORTED IN THIS CLAM AREA. ON THREE OCCASIONS INDONESIAN TROOPS HAVE EXCHANGED FIRE WITH BRITISH FRONTIER PATROLS AND A NUMBER OF DEAD ARE REPORTED.
