Some of you may recognise it. Some of you are still scratching your heads. Worry not, this is in fact the ruins of a brick bungalow built by none other than William Kellie Smith.

Auxiliary Police During The Emergency

1948 to 1960 proved to be troubling times as Malaya had to experience attacks within its borders in the form of Communist insurgents. The brave men in the photograph above did their part in helping to keep their towns safe through patrolling the streets at night, they were the Auxiliary police and for that we are truly grateful for their deeds.

Do you have any stories you could share with us about the auxiliary police? Was your father, grandfather part of the force or were you part of the force yourself? Let us know…
