An Army patrol in Malaya, 1957.

Photograph, Malaya, 1957.

In order to counter the guerilla campaign being waged by the Malayan Communist Party (MCP), British soldiers had to be taught how to live and fight in the jungle. The Malayan Emergency started in 1948 when the MCP began attacking plantations, derailing trains and burning workers' houses. The Communists were jungle based and supported by the impoverished Chinese population, who lived mainly in cities and at the fringes of jungles.
