I had on May 27th 2009 posted an article titled 'The Boys Wing of the Royal Military College a target for obliteration'. I am pleased to note that the article had generated a lot of discussions that were generally against the 'eviction' of the Boys Wing from its present location at Sg. Besi Camp. I knew this article will touch upon the sentiments of all those who were former students of the Boys Wing, as the move will obliterate the history of the institution.
I am equally pleased that the Executive Secretary of The Old Putra Association, Lt Kol Azuddin Fuad has come forward to explain the latest position with regards to the Boys Wing, and to quell all doubts and concern regarding the purported move of the Boys Wing out of Sg. Besi Camp.
According to Lt Kol Azuddin Fuad, there is already a plan that is in its final stages, to built a new Boys Wing just behind the existing site valued at approximately RM100 million. This would mean that the Boys Wing will remain in Sg. Besi Camp, and what is to become of the present Boys Wing is yet unknown.
The move to construct a new Boys Wing is apt, considering that the present structures are getting old and does not reflect an institution that is in keeping with modernity.
With the above explanation, I hope all those who were students of the Boys Wing, will now be relieved of their concern for their Alma Mater. For those who wants further information regarding the the Boys Wing may please contact Lt Kol Azuddin Fuad at 012-3993125
