       Malaysia - The Emergency (Singapore extension available)

As with many of the colonies in the British Empire,Malaya found the road to independence would be hard to navigate. The spread of Communism across the world after World War Two almost took a grip of the Malayan peninsula. Combating that threat here, as in many places around the world, brought the British Armed Service into conflict with a native population – often with dramatic consequences. While much of the time for what Leslie Thomas would call ‘The Virgin Soldiers’ was the tedium of National Service life punctuated with jungle experience,there are some explosive actions that marked 'The Emergency'.





 Malaya Peninsula & Sarawak WW2, Emergency & Confrontation

 (Singapore extension available)

Join us in a tour that covers the history and culture of an outstanding nation. We will take you to explore the story of how this country moved from status as a British colony into independence and how it coped with the efforts to establish itself as it is now – a key state in South-East Asia. Across the peninsula and into the Malaysian part of the island of Borneo, our tour will give you a unique opportunity, with your experienced guide, to gain an insight into the rich background of the nation we can see today.

  Malaysia - War with Indonesia (Singapore extension available)

Malaysia and Indonesia fought a confrontation between 1962-66.
For a brief period Singapore, Malaya and the former British Protectorates of Sabah and Sarawak on Borneo joined to form one country. Indonesia objected which led to an undeclared war or ‘Confrontation. Most of the action in the border area between Indonesia and East Malaysia on the island of Borneo.

The British with Australia and New Zealand troops played a major role in supporting the Malaysian Armed Forces. By August 1966, following Indonesian President Suharto's rise to power, a peace agreement finally took effect as Indonesia accepted the existence of Malaysia. Join us in a tour that takes you to gain an experience of the action in Borneo, the few events on the Peninsula as well as giving you the opportunity to experience much of the vibrant culture of this exciting nation.

                           NAVAL COMMEMORATION TOURS 

                            (in the fashion of HMS Egret)

In August 2012, Spirit of Remembrance arranged a tour for Phyllis Clemens to visit the site of the sinking of HMS Egret to pay her respects to her first husband who died with 196 fellow crewmen when the Egret was sunk on 27 August 1943. Phyllis said this was the first time that she had an opportunity to say goodbye properly. Spirit of Remembrance is proud that we could help Phyllis achieve such a special and highly personal experience. 

On behalf of descendants, and to commemorate similar Events, we organise visits to the sites of the sinking of ships sunk during war. The trips would be for approximately one week and would include air fares, accommodation and boat hire to get to the exact site. We provide the opportunity for relatives to visit the location of the sinking to undertake an act of remembrance and commemoration.

    Falkland Islands War Tour

 The Falklands War began on Friday 2 April 1982, when Argentine forces invaded and occupied the Falkland Islands and South Georgia. TheBritish government dispatched a naval task force to engage theArgentine Navy and Air Force, and retake the islands by amphibious assault.The resulting conflict lasted 74 days and ended with the Argentine surrender on 14 June 1982, which returned the islands to British control.During the conflict, 649 Argentine military personnel, 255 British military personnel and 3 Falkland Islanders died. In that time names that had previously only been known by a very few, became household terms. Whether San Carlos, Goose Green, Bluff Cove, or Mount Tumbledown or terms such as ‘Yomping’, whether you were in the Armed Forces involved in the campaign or watched on television, this war became an event that has remained a strong memory for those who lived through it. We will work with you to create a tour that is special to you and covers the areas you wish to visit.
