Australian SAS on Patrol The Indonesian Confrontation (1963-1966) Operations
This piece of film shows members of an SAS patrol making their way through jungle and across streams -- the soldiers look wary and are clearly concentrating on their surroundings. The presence of a camera, however, suggests that this was not a patrol in which the troops were in great danger. Among the most interesting scenes are those in which the troops meet local villagers with whom they share food and cigarettes.

Begitu dahsyatnya pertempuran dihutan-hutan Kalimantan namun jarang yang ter ekspose ke public. Semoga sedikit demi sedikit fakta sebenarnya tentang apa yang terjadi disana terungkap. Baik dari versi Persemakmuran, versi Malaysia, dan tentu sekali versi kita sendiri. Tanpa mengurang rasa hormat buat pejuang-pejuang kita yang sudah gugur di belantara Kalimantan sana, apresiasi yang sama juga patut diberikan kepada tentara Persemakmuran. Mereka semua sama-sama ulet, sama-sama tangguh.
