On reviewing the photographs contributed by Alan Morley, I believe my father, Edward Burrows is third from the right in both the 10th and potentially 11th pictures in the Taiping section. Both pictures are 'pre-tattoo's'! We have a similar picture of the drums as well. Edward was also known as Ted to some and maybe David to others (that's another story) and served between 1956-1958. He sadly passed away at the end of November but did have the opportunity to meet up with fellow serviceman as part of the National Malaya and Borneo Veterans Association based in Grantham in the past few years. Dad did not talk a great deal of his time in Malaya - from reading reports of what he may have seen while he was there, it is understandable why. It is great that you have created an informative site that links to an important time for the British forces abroad in the empire.
I hope the above has helped add names to faces.
Kind regards, Melanie Gilbert, 20 December 2015.
