Terendak, in the Malayan state of Melaka (Malacca), was a self-contained township of around 10,000 inhabitants – the base for the 28th Commonwealth Infantry Brigade Group. It consisted of New Zealanders along with British, Australian and Gurkha units. The RNZAF flew 1,700 New Zealand troops and their families to Terendak in 1961, and they stayed till 1969. This 1961 extract from the newsreel film Malayan Airlift shows the New Zealand Army families moving to Terendak Camp.
