Support for the MNLA was mainly based on around 500,000 of the 3.12 million ethnic Chinese then living in Malaya. Despite the drawdown in violence in 1960, communist leader Chin Peng renewed the insurgency against the Malaysian Government in 1967; this second phase of the insurgency lasted until 1989. He fled to exile in Thailand, where he lived until his death on 16 September 2013. The Cheshire Regiment was deployed to Malaya in 1957.
