WELCOME TO OUR RECOGNITION OF RCB CAMPAIGN

Never Give UpHello and thanks for visiting.

In a nutshell our campaign is to have the Rifle Company Butterworth (RCB)’s service recognised as warlike. The Government, despite the facts discovered since its original decision, says its non-warlike service similar to peacetime garrison duty in Australia.

In 1970 RCB was deployed to protect the RAAF assets (aircraft, facilities, servicemen and women and their families) at the Air Base Butterworth Malaysia from 1970 to 1989 at the time when Malaysia was fighting its Counter Insurgency War (1968-1989) against the resurgent communist terrorists.
