I have just changed the header image for a photo taken in 1971, showing the first Commander 6 Malaysia Infantry Brigade, the late Brig Gen Yusoff bin Abu Bakar, popularly known as Gen Jimmy Yusoff, shaking hands with soldiers on operations in Keroh, Perak.
The Commander was on a visit to distribute Hari Raya goodies to troops operating along the Thai-Malaysia border areas. You will notice a figure of a lady at the back right of the Commander, and that is the wife of the Commander whom we all address her as Kak Comel.
To all those who have known Kak Comel, she is such a sweet soft spoken lady who died in 1995, at the time when I was Commanding 4 Brigade in Temerloh.
I still have in my possession, a piece of black kain songket that I bought from Kak Comel at a cost of RM 50/-. Despite the kain songket being almost 38 years from the day that I had purchased it, the kain songket is still is excellent form.
I can recall that this trip to distribute Hari Raya goodies to troops was accompanied by several wives, including that of my young wife, and the wife of Capt Ghazali (Speedy) Ibrahim.
