Chin Peng & John Davis reconciled in London

In her biography of the equally legendary John Davis, British historian Margaret Shennan verifies that the former and also deceased official of colonial Malaya and CPM veteran Chin Peng met again in London in 1998. She also observes in Our Man in Malaya (London, Sutton, 2008) that: " For more than fifty years their mutual respect overcame their ideological differences". John Davis ( 1911-2006 ) passed away at 95.

Rest of British Commonwealth less vindictive

sc, u r correct, correct, correct .... only little & small men are so vindictive because their minds are otherwise idle. the only 'heroic' and 'great' things these people did was to serve as Brits' 'macai' or 'pak turut'.
