In the north east was the colony of North Borneo or Sabah, to the west lay the Sultanate of Brunei, and stretching along the remainder of the northern coast was the colony of Sarawak. It was the ambition of President Sokarno of Indonesia to create a Greater Indonesia which would include the whole of British North Borneo and the newly independent Malaya. He was opposed by Tunku Abdul Rahman, Prime Minister of Malaya, who in 1961 attempted to form a federation consisting of Malaya, Singapore, the North Borneo States, and the Sultanate of Brunei.

Citation for Edward Medal ‘His Majesty the King has been graciously pleased to award the Edward Medal to David Noel Booker and Samuel Booker, in recognition of their gallantry in the following circumstances. On the afternoon of the 14th May 1937, three men were at work dismantling the plant at a conveyor face in a gate, at a distance of some 70-80 yards from the main level, in the Littleton Colliery, South Staffordshire. Firedamp appeared to be spreading in the gate, since at about 8pm, a fireman set off from the level to see what the men were doing up the gate and found that his lamp was extinguished at about 20 yards from the level. Between this time and about midnight , when full rescue apparatus became available and the bodies were recovered, efforts at rescue were made by a succession of men, some of whom themselves collapsed and thereby added to the task of later rescuers: of these one, Mr. Walmsley, the Under-Manager, himself lost his life, thus bringing the death toll to four. In these operations the brothers Booker were outstanding. Each of them forced his way up the gate on four or five separate occasions, and they were jointly or severally responsible for extricating four ealier rescuers who had succumbed to the gas, all of these survived except Mr. Walmsley, the under-manager. On all of these occasion the brothers Booker, who seem to have been men of high resisting powers, displayed great courage, which is to be rated even more highly as it was reinforced by an almost equal measure of coolness and forethought.’.

A fine civilian's Suakin 1885 operations Suakin to Berber Railway construction pair awarded to Platelayer C.

Bundy, King's Royal Rifle Corps. Egypt Medal 1882, reverse undated, clasp Suakin 1885; (PLATELAYER. C. BUNDY.);  Khedives Star dated 1884-6. With related, Army Long Service and Good Conduct Medal, VR, small letter reverse; (2630. PTE. M. BUNDY. K.R.RIF: CORPS.) C. Bundy, was a platelayer employed by the railway contractors, Lucas and Aird, the engineering company responsible for constructing the Suakin to Berber Railway in 1885. The exact objectives of the Suakin to Berber Railway, which was clearly an ambitious project, intended to cross 280 miles of desert as a means of supply and transport. Lucas and Aird signed the contract on February 17th 1885, but the civilian process of railway construction came into conflict with those responsible for the region's military aims. A 'Minute Paper' sent to the Surveyor General was received at the War Office on February 24th, 1885 implying that this would cause friction and difficulty, but the advice was apparently unheeded. The military position here may be summarised by Lieutenant-Colonel Sandes in 'The Royal Engineers in Egypt and The Sudan' [1937]. Sandes implies that the Navvies, working on the railway, lacked the motivation which the military situation required, a view clearly not shared by the civilian workers. Sandes comments, without humour, that although issued with pith helmets, the Navvies preferred to wear their bowler hats. Bundy was presumably one such Railway Navvy, sent from England, with experience of permanent way construction, but in the event, the British Government abandoned the project after a mere 18 miles of track had been laid. This had cost the taxpayer in excess of £865,000. The Army Long Service and Good Conduct Medal was awarded to a relative, Private (No.2630) M. Bundy, King's Royal Rifle Corps. (3) Good very fine
