Two unidentified soldiers from 2nd Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment (2RAR), and a Malayan Policewoman undertake gate checking duty of a group of people at the entry point to a village in the Kuala Kangsar district of Perak. 2RAR is involved in a food denial and control operation which is conducted to prevent food supplies from falling into the hands of Communist terrorists, who are known to be active in the area. All people entering or leaving the village are searched for contraband. Here, a lighter moment as one soldier says hello to a small Malayan boy sitting on the handlebars of a bicycle.
