Batang Kali massacre

I have been doing some research into the latest cases of declassified files on the internet and stumble upon the Batang Kali massacre. It seems that the secret documents have been made not secret anymore so it may lead to a sole survivor of the bloodiest massacre at the start of the British occupation in Malaya back in 1948 to begin some proceedings against the government.

Well, good luck to Tham Yong. I am sure that she will be told of what really happened when her fiance died while fleeing from a group of Scots Guard. It reminds me of the nuclear submarine USS Scorpion (SSN-589) and USS Thresher (SSN-593) where both of them were declared lost at sea. No official statements were made as to why they were lost at sea. Family and loved ones must be anxious to know what really went wrong with those two nuclear powered submarines. As the details are classfied, it will be a long time since those people who wants to know what happened to the crew of both submarines.
