Sarawak Border Scouts

Scouts formed and trained by the Special Air Service (SAS) & the Ghurka Parachute Company to fight for Malaysian Independence against the Sarawak Communist Organisation (SCO) and Indonesia.

One source states the Sarawak Border Scouts Platoons (composed of Iban Trekkers) were formed during the Communist insurgency in Malaya in the 1950s.
( I assume "Trekkers" = Trackers(???) )

The insignia depicts the Rhinoceros Hornbill, the State Bird of Sarawak.

Partial History
The Indonesia-Malaysia confrontation during the 1960s was Indonesia's political and armed opposition to the creation of Malaysia. It is also known by its Indonesian/Malay name Konfrontasi. The creation of Malaysia was the amalgamation of the Federation of Malaya (now West Malaysia) with the Crown Colony/British Protectorate of Sabah and Sarawak (collectively known as British Borneo, now East Malaysia) in September 1963.
The confrontation was an undeclared war with most of the action in the border area between Indonesia and East Malaysia on the island of Borneo (known as Kalimantan in Indonesia). However, Sabah and Sarawak were ethnically, religiously, & politically diverse and there was some local opposition to joining Malaysia that Indonesia attempted to exploit, with very little success.
The terrain in Borneo was challenging and there were very few roads; both sides relied on light infantry operations and air transport, although rivers were also used.
The British and Malaysian Armed Forces provided Forces along with Australia and New Zealand.
In 1965 the British started covert operations into Indonesian Kalimantan under the code name Operation Claret.
In 1966 President Suharto's took control of Indonesia and a peace agreement was agreed upon recognizing the formation of the State of Malaysia.

partial History from a Liverpool resident on the  Bird on the patch
The bird on the patch is what we in Liverpool call The Liver Bird. When our city was formed hundreds of years ago, it was a big water inlet known as The Pool.
         Cormorant birds would come to this pool to feed on the rich seaweed ( Lava ).
         Over time, with the settling of English and Irish peoples the LAVA POOL became known as LIVERPOOL.
         Some people say the bird is a sea eagle but I still say it's a cormorant. In the birds beak, you will see the Lava weed.

partial History (not edited)
Among the twelve labors imposed on the Greek hero Hercules, one of the most difficult was to slay the monster Hydra which, when one of its numerous heads was severed, was able to grow two new heads unless the wound was cauterized.   Like Hercules, C.E. & P.E. is called upon to solve many varied tasks for which great ingenuity, ability, and persistence are required.
Central Experimental and Proving Establishment
From the earliest days of the Air Board and the Canadian Air Force Test and Development work was carried on at Ottawa Air Stations Rockcliffe and Shirley's Bay where eventually a special flight was formed for this purpose.
The outbreak of WW2 increased the demands for test flying for research and experiment and as a result the flight was expanded into the Test and Development Establishment in November 1940.
Six years later its name was changed to Experimental and Proving Establishment. On 1 September 1951 the Central Experimental and Proving Establishment was formed by the amalgamation of the E. & P.E. at Rockciffe, the Winter Experimental Establishment at Edmonton, and the R.C.A.F. (National Research Council) Unit at Arnprior with Headquarters of C.E. & P.E. at Rockcliffe with detachments at several sites across Canada. In 1957 CEPE was moved to RCAF Station Uplands a move necessitated by the longer runways required for testing new jet aircraft.
