The Suffolk Regiment in Malaya 1949-53
One for the wish list
Interesting to see an M2 also. (Full Auto M1 carbine). Again not renowned for its stopping power. Although better than 9mm I believe.
Interesting. Thanks Rob.
Great piece, Rob. Did they go through the jungle training school that my grandfather set up I wonder? Am guessing some did. Great subject, not enough written about it, glad you atee both rectifying that!
Reading the obituary today of a Māori who trained them in Jungle tactics.
An important training ground for Australian participants in Vietnam. Thinking particularly of Major H Smith at Long Tan. By that time Owen guns were out of favour, and Smith recommended their removal from TOE.
