40 and 42 Commando Royal Marines served in Borneo/Malaysia 1962-66 to put down a rebellion. The 350 Rebels were no match for them, however the Marines lost 5 at Limbang during the river assault to free some British hostages.
The Marines in the film appear to be on patrol verses a combat mission perhaps because of the slings still attached to their SLR's and carrying of only 1 water bottle.
Thanks for the film.

Ugh!

Talk about the suck. The BREN gunner must have been hating life.

The MAG-58 gunner must have really been hating life.
