malaysia Konfrontasi

North Borneo, Sarawak, Brunei and Sabah

08-dec-62    to    11-aug-66

Although the seeds of the conflict (it was never acknowledged as a war) were sown in WWII and followed from Operation Firedog, violence erupted when Indonesian backed forces attacked Brunei Town early in the morning of 8 Dec 1962, in an attempt to derail the formation of the Federation of Malaysia. The first helicopters to arrive were 2 Sycamore from 110 Squadron on 24 Dec 1962 at Seletar. Operations to contain, disrupt and remove terrorist activities continued until the signing of the Bangkok Agreement in Aug 1966. Known as Operation Ale by the British.
