Sir Henry Gurney, the British High Commissioner for Malaya, was ambushed and killed on his way to Fraser’s Hill. Elements of the 2nd Battalion were involved in the large-scale follow-up to find the killers, themselves killing several men from 24th Company 6th Regiment MRLA, one of the enemy units known to have been involved.  Click here for an account of the campaign.
