Membership is open to all Australian and Allied ex-Armed Forces personnel (and widows, widowers, family and friends) who served in the prescribed areas of Malaya, Singapore and Borneo during WW2, during the Malayan Emergency (1948-60), the Brunei Revolt (1962) and the Indonesian Confrontation with Malaysia (1962-66), on the Thai-Malay Border, in Malaysia, Sabah, Sarawak, Ubon and on the Malay Peninsula post-1966, with Rifle Company Butterworth, and in East Timor/Timor Leste.
In Adelaide each year in August, on the Friday or Saturday closest to 31 August (Malaya & Borneo Veterans Day), we host a service of commemoration in the West Torrens War Memorial Gardens to honour the fallen.
We conduct commemoration services in the Sarawak Heroes Memorial Park in Kuching, Sarawak to honour the Australian Service personnel who lost their lives during Confrontation. Our Branch also provides financial assistance to three schools in the Bau District of Sarawak, located in areas where Australian forces were deployed in 1965 and 1966 during Confrontation.
