Paul, Don & Jeff: Reunion in Sarawak

Posted on: Mon 30 Oct 2023

Today we bring you a rather unique past and present type interview with members of the Malaya and Borneo Veterans Association, South Australia.    Paul Rosenzweig OAM, chats with two Veterans of the conflict in Borneo,  Jeff Hiscock and Don Cameron… the three of them talk about a recent commemorative visit to Sarawak, and Jeff and Don intersperse that with memories of their service in the region in the 1960s, as Paul tells us some of the historic aspects of the conflict.
