KOSB Malaya Veterans

The First Battalion The Kings Own Scottish Borderers (1 KOSB) served in Malaya from 1955 to 1958, a tour of duty that spanned independence (Merdeka) day on 31st August 1957.

On Thursday 17th September 2015 the KOSB Malaya Veterans' Annual All Ranks Reunion Dinner was held in Peebles in the Scottish Borders, with a special focus on the 60th Anniversary of the Regiments' arrival in Malaya in September 1955.  Over 130 people attended and it was a truly memorable occasion.
