Malaya & Borneo Veterans Day

Posted on: Fri 25 Aug 2017

“The nominal rolls for these two campaigns are the only two, post World War Two, that have not been completed for the mean and the women that served”

Now a Nominal Roll is being drawn up in Canberra for those who fought in two undeclared wars, allowing the Malaya and Borneo Veterans and their families to receive the entitlements they’ve previously been denied. Brian Selby, President of the SA/NT Branch of the National Malaya & Borneo Veterans’ Association of Australia, explained why acknowledging these wars is so important.
