Part 2 covers Indonesian Confrontation (1963-1966), described as a “silent war”. It encompasses the support given by the mobilisedRMNVR reservists from Singapore, Penang and Klang divisions to the RMN during anti-infiltration patrols in East and West Malaysian waters, as well as serving in the TAG Operational area of Tawau residency (Sabah – North Borneo) under the 42 RM Commando & Green Jackets.

The accounts in both parts of the book were written by the reservists themselves as well as by naval researchers. A number of the naval reserve veterans have since died, and their rarely known service for king and country are now revealed in this book – their legacy.
