RPCV to visit Dallas
- We received an e-mail from Thaine Allison Jr., Malaysia 62-62, who
served in Sabah North Borneo. He will be in Dallas to promote a
documentary film about a hostage situation involving the colonial
residents in Borneo along with some Americans and the rebels who took
them captive during the 60âs. One of the hostages was a Peace Corps
volunteer at the time. The documentary is called Return to Limbang
and relates the story of the British marines who rescue the captives.
The movie follows up with interviews of the parties involved forty
years later. Allisonâs best friend was one of the captive and he
participates in the film. If you are interested in learning more
