Henry Gurney killed

February 26th, 2020

This building, at the foot of the Fraser’s Hill, Pahang, was known as the Gap rest house and restaurant, but it is now abandoned. In October 1951, at the height of the Malayan Emergency War ( 1948-1960), not far from here, along the Kuala Kubu Road, the Malayan National Liberation army (MNLA) ambushed and killed Sir Henry Gurney, the British High Commissioner. It was the MNLA’s greatest victory, at that time, in the many battles against the British forces in Malaya. The British had been brutal against the local population; using search and destroy tactics, burning homes and crops, by forcing about 500,000 of them into over 400 concentration camps, thousands of deportations, tortures, imprisonments and killings, not to mention the heavy areal bombings using agent orang. Many anti British resistance groups, in the British Empire, at that time, would have done the same.
