This Day in History: 1956-03-07

The 2nd Battalion returned to Malaya from Hong Kong. They were based in the area of Bahau, in Negri Sembilan, where they carried out operations during the rest of the year. A novelty since their last tour was the issue of Ferret scout cars armed with .30 calibre Browning machine guns to help with road protection and convoy duties.
