Jamy creates plaque to mark 50th anniversary of the battle for Plaman Mapu Sarawak

Jamy is honoured to have been chosen to create an acrylic plaque to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the battle for Plaman Mapu Sarawak in Borneo.

From the Army MOD website: 

Fifty years on, veteran Paratroopers have returned to the scene of a battle in Borneo to remember those who lost their lives.

The Battle of Plaman Mapu, 50 years ago yesterday (27 April 1965), saw 36 members of B Company 2nd Battalion the Parachute Regiment (2 PARA), on operations in Borneo, defend their company location from 400 elite Indonesian soldiers who attacked the camp on the Malay border with Indonesia in a dawn raid.

During the battle, which lasted a few short hours, two Paras were killed and several more were injured. However, large numbers of the enemy were killed and the rest retreated back into the jungle.

Yesterday, a group of veterans returned to the scene to build a cairn and lay a memorial plaque for the two paratroopers killed, Lance Corporal Ian McKellar and Private Harry Smith, who are buried at Kranji Cemetery in Singapore.

Many of the paratroopers who defended the camp that day were teenagers, fresh from training, deployed to the jungles of Borneo as part of Operation Claret, a two-year mission involving British and Commonwealth forces, to defend the Malay border from Indonesian invasion.

Gil Boyd BEM, Director of Operations at Goodman Bentley Spec/Ops Design & Security Limited for 2 PARA:

“We all appreciated the great job you did on the plaque so it follows that you should see it in situ on the 50th anniversary when we were there last week on the 27th April 2015 in 45 degree sweltering heat with over 200 local villagers from the area around the hill that 35 soldiers of 2 PARA fought off 400 Indonesian Special Forces killing over 300. I have just returned via Singapore as we called into the Military Cemetery there to also have a special service at the two graves of two of the lads that were killed at Plaman Mapu. Very moving and highly emotional five days on two continents in the Far East supported by serving members of 2 PARA and the three veterans of the battle.

Picture shows Major General James Bashall who I took out with us a past CO of 2 PARA pulling off our Regimental flag to reveal the plaque. The full story to be revealed in the Sunday Telegraph this weekend if interested in hearing about real brave young 19 year old soldiers!!

As always a big thank you guys”

Secrecy and Security….

Monday, November 3rd, 2014

mcafeeEarlier this year, Jamy Ltd were approached by internet security company McAfee, part of Intel Security, about a forthcoming project. Advised that the McAfee Vice President of UK Product Development would be delivering specific items in person, Jamy were unsure about the nature of the work at this point – but it clearly required some very high security.

 

A week later, McAfee’s Paul Gartside arrived with his support team – and also a hard drive containing all of the world’s computer viruses discovered over the past 30 years! The brief was for Jamy’s expert team to encapsulate the hard drive in its entirety in Lucite® acrylic – thereby encasing and preserving it.
Created for the McAfee International Cybersecurity Exhibition at Buckinghamshire’s  Bletchley Park, the encapsulated hard drive was billed as “Pandora’s Box meets Schrödinger’s cat”. The drive itself contains asingle sample of every type of Malware from the last 30 years and although the viruses are ‘alive’ but inoperable, any attempt to crack open the Lucite® would destroy the disk surface and its contents.

Nick Burt, Managing Director at Jamy said: “We are delighted to have been chosen by global cybersecurity experts McAfee to work with such a unique slice of history. It’s amazing to think that this rare item we’ve been privileged to handle is now taking pride of place in the exhibition at Bletchley Park, home of the World War Two Codebreakers and birthplace
of modern computer science”.

 

McAfee opened its international Cybersecurity Exhibition, titled ‘Secrecy and Security – Keeping Safe Online’ and Computer Learning Zone in July 2014, as part of a five-year collaborative partnership with Bletchley Park. The partnership is the largest in McAfee’s history outside the US, bringing together two organisations highly committed to keeping people of all ages safe online. Workshops are being run to engage, inspire and educate visitors about the ever-evolving cyber threat and learn how the achievements of the Codebreakers remain relevant today.
