Brian Selby, the SA & NT President of The National Malaya and Borneo Veterans Association of Australia heard of The Legacy Hour’s upcoming Anzac Day program, when Ken Matthews will present a 50 minute talk about his life in the Army, including his service in Malaya and Borneo on the then top secret Claret Operations.

Brian joined us this week to give a bit of background to the confrontation which has been forgotten by many, as well as our own Government, even though survivors, including Military Cross and Victoria Cross recipients of the conflict are still alive. Some live in South Australia.

Brian tells us some astounding things about recognition/non-recognition of the confrontation.
