Post War Places
Fort Brooke
A lonely police and military post near Cameron Highland was visited. It was built by 22nd SAS to control the east area of Cameron Highland where communist activities from Gua Musang to Cameron Highland can be stopped.

Built near orang asli village, it was commanded by military or police and it was famously published by Roy Follows who commanded the fort on his book "Jungle Beat".

Fort Brooke was built with 3 machineguns emplacement protected by sandbags and later concretes to protect the fort from attacks. The fort also equipped with helicopter landing pad and constantly re-supplied with airdrops from Dakotas and Valettas. The fort also was protected with barbed wires and everyone inside the perimeter were 24 hours alerted. Patrols also were sent out to patrol nearby area.

Later it was commanded by Royal Malaysian Police until late 80s when it was demolished and abandoned. Today, the new Post Brooke was built which moved slightly south of the original location and connected by new highway routes from Cameron Highland to Gua Musang. The old fort was now overgrown and forgotten.
