Malaysia during the 1960's

Here are some pictures via a friend of various scenes during activities by the British forces in Malaysia during the 1960's. It is assumed that this was during the early 60's period, as the Vickers Valiant was retired from RAF service from 1964 due to the discovery of metal fatigue. Please note that these scans were taken from some very old slides!
