Part I of this book, written by naval reservists and researchers, relates the actual accounts of the Colonial Royal Naval Reservists from Australia, Britain, Burma, Hong Kong, India, Singapore and Penang engaged in operations against the Japanese during World War II. Part II covers the Indonesian Confrontation, and encompasses the support given by the mobilised RMNVR reservists from Singapore, Penang and Klang divisions to the RMN. These accounts illustrate vividly the major part that naval Reservists played in the operations and the rich variety of experience and background which Reservists brought to bear.
