18 Jun Malayan Emergency
Meg Haensel Fuss shared a post.(Facebook)
We had a fairly big involvement in this “campaign” – ships were sent on 9 month duty tours to SE Asia, some of the ships & crews involved directly in the Malay Emergency were:
Arunta & Warramunga (Tribal Class Destroyers);
Anzac II & Tobruk (Battle Class Destroyers);
Quiberon, Quickmatch & Queenborough (Q Class Destroyers);
Melbourne CV21 & Voyager.
Someone will be able to add more, not sure about smaller vessels such as patrol boats.
The RAN & RAN Personnel also helped with the formation of the Malaysian Navy.
