THE ASSAULT ON LIMBANG, SARAWAK BY 'L' COMPANY GROUP,
42 COMMANDO ROYAL MARINES ON 12th DECEMBER, 1962
1. It is impossible to write a full account of events up to the time that the Company left BRUNEI for the operation, because 42 Commando was flying into BRUNEI and arriving by sea throughout this time.
2. The Company Commander was briefed for the operation by Commander 99 GURKHA Infantry Brigade, at BRUNEI Airport, at 0600hrs on 11 Dec 62, with instructions to pass the brief onto the Commanding Officer 42 Commando should he arrive in time. He (Company Commander) then had 56 men of 'L' Company and a section of Medium Machine Guns at BRUNEI Airport and immediately left - in a borrowed vehicle - for Force Headquarters in BRUNEI Town for a further briefing and to arrange motor transport and boats for the operation.
