Malaya remembered

WELCOME TO THE Welcome to the SOCIETY CancerCANCER Society MARLBOROUGH Marlborough

By Adam Poulopoulos Council officials and Marlborough RSA members joined the Marlborough Branch of the New Zealand Malaya Veterans’ Association in Seymour Square to mark the 55-year anniversary of the end of the Malayan Emergency. Deputy Mayor Terry Sloan and Reverend Canon Graeme Grennell were among the guests commemorating the emergency on Friday. The emergency began in 1948 and ended on July 31, 1960. While addressing the veterans, Sloan says they should be proud of their involvement in the war, which is often less well-remembered than the Vietnam War. “You all waited patiently to be properly recognised and it was a long wait – 30 years before the Government bestowed you with well-deserved medals for your services. “It is said the connections New Zealand has with Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia can be traced back to the relationships forged all those years ago. “There are returned servicemen buried here in Marlborough and they, like you, are part of the region’s proud military history.” Sloan says New Zealand’s participation in jungle warfare helped prepare those soldiers who went on to serve in Vietnam. In all, 1300 New Zealanders across the Army, Navy and Air Force served in Malaysia, Borneo and Singapore. Fifteen were killed in the emergency, with three dying due to enemy action when their Bristol Freighter aircraft flew into a mountain. Another seven died in the subsequent peacekeeping operation.

Another milestone in the revamp of the Marlborough Airport terminal has been reached with the opening of the new internal access and foyer. The narrow accessway from the baggage claim has for the last few months been the only way into the lounge and check-in area.
