The Gurkha Museum is putting on an exhibition to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the end of the jungle war in Borneo.
Gurkha Museum

Should make for an interesting and timely reminder of an often overlooked counter-insurgency campaign. Hopefully it will share the light with the non-Gurkha elements in that war.

Thanks a lot for that link, RP578. I never knew there was a Ghurka Museum. Looks well worth a visit.

Heard a lot about Borneo as a kid from my old man who was at Plaman Mapu, where the Indos tried to score a big victory across the border. He made it sound like Rorke's Drift Mk 2 and later reading on my part after his death confirmed it was quite a night. Perhaps a candidate for the suggested war film thread...
