Abaft Aft of a given point on a ship; e.g. the bridge is abaft the bow.

  • Home Guard atau Pengawal Kampung ditubuhkan bertujuan untuk menjaga keselamatan setempat apabila darurat diisytiharkan pada tahun 1948. Ahli-ahlinya terdiri daripada sukarelawan masyarakat setempat. Pasukan Pengawal Kampung dibubarkan setelah darurat diisytiharkan tamat pada 31 Julai 1960.
  • Tenaga sukarelawan digembleng sekali lagi apabila negara menghadapai ancaman konfrontasi dengan Indonesia dari tahun 1963-1965. Pasukan Kawalan telah diwujudkan bagi membantu agensi keselamatan menangani pendaratan dan penyusupan pihak Indonesia.  Pada waktu itu, Pasukan Kawalan bertindak sebagai mata dan telinga kerajaan untuk melaporkan kepada pasukan keselamatan tentang ancaman pihak Indonesia. Apabila tamat konfrontasi pada tahun 1965, ia telah dibubarkan.
  • Pada 13 Mei 1969 telah berlaku pergaduhan antara kaum. Insiden yang berlaku telah menyedarkan pemimpin-pemimpin negara pada ketika itu tentang pentingnya diwujudkan satu pasukan sukarela yang tetap bagi membantu kerajaan dalam menangani masalah dan ancaman keselamatan. Allahyarham Tun Dr. Ismail Abdul Rahman yang ketika itu Timbalan Perdana Menteri dan juga Menteri Dalam Negeri mencadangkan supaya pasukan sukarela berfungsi sebagai mata dan telinga kerajaan.
