This Day In History: 1962-12-08

The Brunei revolt began when a militia group known as the National Army of North Kalimantan (TNKU) launched attacks againsst police stations and oil fields across Brunei and East Sarawak. By 2300 hrs that day the ‘Initial Force’ of the 1st Battalion had flown in from Singapore and was operating in Brunei town, a considerable achievement.
