The NMBVAA was established in Australia in June 1995.
There are Branches and sub-Branches of this Association in most Australian States, and while some Branches are managed  differently, they all represent Australian & Allied Malaya/Malaysian military veterans.
  Remembrance Services are conducted in Ipoh, Malaysia, each year in June, as close to the 16th as possible... (See the Malaysian Pilgrimage Page)
Annual services held in Malaysia are held at the Kamunting Road Christian Cemetery Taiping, the Ipoh Cenotaph, God's Little Acre at Batu Gajah, and the 2nd Battalion Royal Rangers Camp at Kem Syed Putra.
 At the Christian Cemetery at Taiping, there are 28 grave sites of Australian  soldiers who died during, and beyond the Malayan Emergency. There are also some Australian dependents buried there.
Please  contact the Liaison Officer, Ian Holthouse on 
0477 160097, or NMBVAATASINC SECRETARY on 03 6383 4677,
 if you wish to attend the
above functions.
