No Claims Bonus from outside EU - any insurers who will recognise it?

I'm returning to UK after 3 years in Brunei. When I left, had 4 yrs no claims bonus. 3 yrs claim-free in Brunei, but I understand that insurers stop counting NCB when you have been out of the country for more than 2 years? (is this correct?)

Does anyone know of any insurance companies who will recognise non-EU NCB? Or even give us, say, a year's NCB for proof of 3yrs without a claim in Brunei? (obviously the first year's NCB is the biggy).

thanks. checked them out already, they were awful - cheapest quote was nearly £1500.

ironically, the cheapest by far has been Forces Financial. they recognise overseas NCB, but it actually worked out cheaper without it! over £1000 with 3 yrs overseas NCB, but hefty discount as a new customer with no recent UK insurance - £717.
I am afraid your best bet is to shop around as you have noted as a new customer some companies do good deals. At least you have age and a clean record working in your favour.
