  • Description

    THE ROYAL LEICESTERS HAVE BEEN ALL OVER THE BORNEO TERRITORIES SINCE LAST OCTOBER. RECENTLY, THEY HAVE BEEN BUILDING DEFENCE POSITIONS IN THE BORDER AREAS OF SABAH (NORTH BORNEO).

    IT IS FROM POSITIONS SUCH AS THIS THAT BRITISH TROOPS ARE MAKING THEIR REGULAR PATROLS OF THE BORDER JUNGLES, WATCHING FOR INTRUDING INDONESIAN TERRORISTS. AT THE SAME TIME, THEY ARE INSPIRING CONFIDENCE AMONG THE LOCAL INHABITANTS.

    THE ROYAL LEICENSTERS HAVE BEEN IN THE FAR-FLUNG OUTPOSTS FOR MORE THAN FOUR MONTHS. THEY WERE FLOWN TO THE FAR-EAST LAST YEAR, AS SUPPORT TROOPS WHEN THE REBELLION IN THE OIL SULTANATE OF BRUNEI WAS AT ITS HEIGHT.

    MEANWHILE, THE 40 INDONESIAN TERRORISTS WHO ATTACKED TWO BUNGALOWS IN KALABAKAN, 30 MILES WEST OF TAWAU IN DECEMBER, KILLING EIGHT MEMBERS OF THE ROYAL MALAY REGIMENT AND WOUNDING 19, ARE BEING HUNTED BY MALAYSIAN TROOPS.

    SEVERAL THOUSAND INDONESIANS, HIGHLY VALUED AS PLANTATION WORKERS, LIVE IN TAWAU ON THE EAST COAST OF SABAH. ON JANUARY 7, SECURITY FORCES KILLED TEN INDONESIAN TERRORISTS IN MOPPING-UP OPERATIONS.
