The UK and Malaysia maintain close defence ties.

Defence co-operation with the UK is based on the Five Power Defence Arrangements (FPDA), which involve annual joint exercises with other partners (Singapore, Australia and New Zealand), triennial meetings at Defence Minister level and biennial Chiefs of Staff meetings.

In addition I know until the recent Afghan and Iraq conflicts, the the UK on a near constant basis used to have a SAS regiment in country conduction jungle warfare exercises and training to other forces such as Australia and New Zealand in Borneo.

Not far from Brunei also, which maintains a jungle warfare training centre, supported by commercially leased AB-212 choppers.
I think a Gurkha unit is pernamently based there too.
