A MEMORABLE REUNION OF FORMER 6th BATTALION ROYAL MALAY REGIMENT OFFICERS

Retired and serving officers who had seen service with 6th Battalion Royal Malay Regiment held their first ever reunion on Saturday, August 15th at Officers Mess 4th Infantry Division, Kuala Lumpur. Most were accompanied by their spouses, and in attendance too were a couple of wives of deceased officers who despite having lost their husbands, remain steadfast and loyal to the unit in which their husbands had once served. It is indeed a moving sight to see them at the gathering, and it at once struck me that the bond of friendship that had been developed among military officers does not remain among them only, but it also extends to their spouses as well.

I was also moved at the sight of Maj Manan Abas, a surviving recipient of the Military Cross (MC); a British gallantry award the equivalent of the Pingat Gagah Berani (PGB), who was awarded the MC for his gallantry exploits during the Malayan Emergency. Though frail, his presence with his beloved English wife is the hallmark of what soldiers truly are and true to the saying that 'soldiers never die; they just fade away'. And in the case of Maj Manan Abas, even fading away may not be his living wish at all.

Besides Maj Manan Abas, we also had Maj Gen Dato Rahman Khamis and Maj Dato Kamaruddin Jamal who are both recipients of the PGB, and had their gallantry award allowances increased by the government recently from a meager RM300 to RM 1500. To all that had served the Armed Forces and the police, the sum paid to our gallant worriers is not merely a representative of their sacrifice to King and country, but more importantly, a recognition to the fact that there will always be those who value the security of the nation more than their own lives. Such personal sacrifices has no set cash value, and society must remember that it is because of the existence of such warriors in our midst that the nation is at peace today.

And talking about the MC, I had on July 7th, 2008 posted an article regarding Field Marshall Sam Manekshaw of the Indian Army who was a field recipient of the MC for his exemplary gallantry in an offensive against the invading Japanese Army in Burma during the second World War. Field Marshall Sam Manekshaw is the only Indian Army officer to be promoted to the rank of Field Marshall, and of whom I was previleged to have met when I attended my staff course at the Indian Defence Services Staff College in 1983.

Among the gathering too were a couple of former Army chiefs, notably Gen Tan Sri (Jack) Yacob Mat Zain, Gen Dato Ismail Hassan and Gen Dato Seri Azumi Mohamed, who in their own respective military career had contributed immensely towards the betterment of the Army. And Gen Tan Sri (Jack) Yacob was one of those who was invited to reminisce his past as an aspiring young army officer, and whom I am fortunate to have served as his Brigade Major, when he was the Commander 6th Infantry Brigade in Sg. Petani, Kedah.

The gathering too brought me to be with my first Officer Commanding Maj Gen Dato Dahalan Sulaiman, and reuniting for the very first time all the officers that had served him in B Company 6th Battalion Royal Malay Regiment; notably Lt Col Badrudin Yasin (Company Second-in-Command), Mej Gen Dato Aziz Mansor (Platoon Commander), Col Zaini Hashim (Platoon Commander) and Lt Col Syed Haider Syed Ahmad (Platoon Commander). I was also then a young Platoon Commander.
There are lots of stories to tell about all the officers of B Company that I hope to document one day.

I am exceptionally pleased to meet up with Lt Col Badrudin Yasin who excelled in athletics, and was the 100 yards sprint champion at the 4th Brigade Athletics meet in the 60's. He was my mentor of sorts, a strict disciplinarian and one whom I feared most at work, but a true gentlemen off duty hours. As a Company Second-in-Command, he set good examples that he is always the best among soldiers in the military profession, and at the shooting range he proves himself to be a marksman and nothing less.

Finally, the gathering that had brought together former bosses and friends that had served the battalion, could not have been organised more successfully, had it not been for the likes of Brig Gen Dato Hanif Taib, Lt Col Zainal Che Dan and their team of former officers and friends. Most whom I had talked to after the gathering is of the view that this reunion should be a yearly feature, and what better way can all those present relive their past memories in the army, other than a reunion like the one organised on Saturday, August 15.


CRUSADE AGAINST CORRUPTION

Dear Dato',

If the birthright of Malays is Special Previleges, the birthright of Malay Regiment is Army Chief post. Don't get me wrong, I am not jealous nor am I an anti-RAMD. I am only one of many soldiers who has spent my time serving in the army to have lived with the DISCRIMINATION of not being in RAMD and seeing so many good non-RAMD officers being stunted in their career because they were not RAMD.

I hope I am not too much to say here that RAMD officers were a protected lots to have been groomed by their "mentors" with clear "passage" to reach the top starting from officer cadet days. I am not the only one who thinks like this, but I am the only one who says it here because others are too afraid to be braver than RAMD.

So Dato' in many of your postings you immortalised your friends who most of them are generals and ex-generals, I am so sorry to say that they are generals and they were general, only by DEFAULT.

My point is, it is not only in our country we have to live with double standard, but it is also in our Army.

Thousand apology Dato'.

Dear FMZam,

I have three childrens of which I placed my trust to my eldest son to assist me in looking after her two sisters. I hope I am not doing double standard in my family, and so goes to the Army.

The state where you belong to also plays an important factor in your promotion. Every stage in the heirachy trying to look after their own cronies and country men leaving behind those good officers from East Malaysia. They are treated like Gurkha officers in the British Army. The East Malaysian officers are considered lucky for they share the same officer's mess unlike the Gurkha Officers.

Only now we have seen some General from East Malaysia. The good ones have retired early from the service thru frustration.

Well, they can always create Special Previleges anytime they want to...... May God bless the Malaysian Army.

So RAMD, you must keep upholding the head of the fish as long as it is not rotten.

Dear FMZam,

You apologies is accepted. However, by generalising that our Army Chiefs are promoted by default is quite incorrect. I know every Army Chief from Tengku Osman Jewa right down to the time I left the service, and every single one them has their strength and some weaknesses as well. But this does not mean they are incompetent, and I do not think that the making of a service chief is being drawn from a hat. I know that the selection is quite thorough, and one has to respect the final choice upon the consent of the King. Are we to saw that the King is wrong in making the the selection?

komando said...

BEFORE I PROCEED, DATO ARSHAD, I MEANT YOU NO HARM, WE KNOW EACH OTHER FOR A LONG TIME...THIS NOTE HURTS BUT TRUTH ALWAYS HURTS

The fact of the MATTER!

Whoever who did not join the RAMD ...very much likely that a Major's rank or lucky Lt Col will be achievable...

Anythings further is a blessing with the right names behind you and WITH THE RIGHT right connections..

The RAMD has been so designed, from the very beginning..it is part of the KETUANAN MELAYU SYSTEM...PROTECT THE RAJA's AND SULTANS...THAT IS WHY THE COGAN KATA IS WHAT IT IS !

"TAAT SETIA"

IT DEMANDS BLIND LOYALTY AT ALL COST !

OTHERWISE YOU ARE DEEMED TO HAVE DERHAKA !

THE PRICE OF DERHAKA IS PANCUNG KEPALA!

ITU SEBAB RAMD IS WHAT IT IS !

THEY FEAR THE RAJA'S & SULTANS MORE THEN "ALLAH SWT "

SORRY ALL RAMD OFFICERS I HAVE STEPPED OVER BOARD THIS TIME BUT DOES ANY ONE OUT THERE CARES....

I HAVE CROSSED THE LINE THIS TIME BUT TELL ME THAT I AM WRONG !

I WILL PROOF TO ALL THAT IT IS THE TRUTH,,,NOBODY WANTS TO TALK ABOUT IT..NOT WRITTEN BUT STATED AND IMPLIED

JUST A COUPLE OF DAYS AGO..SOMEBODY BROUGHT OUT THE WASIAT DIRAJA !

SUPPOSE TO BE THE WASIAT RAJA RAJA MELAYU DI TANAH MELAYU!

WHO HAVE GIVEN THEM THE RIGHT TO RIGHT THAT WASIAT...DIRAJA !

THE GREAT PROPHET NABI MUHAMMAD saw PUN TAK ADA WASIAT...CUMA SUNNAH DIA!

THE SUNNAH - A RULE AND GUIDELINE FOR ALL HUMANS TO FOLLOW SO THAT WE DON'T BECOME EVIL AND WE DON'T DO EVIL.

THE QURAN IS ANOTHER GUIDELINE BY ALMIGHTY ALLAH swt..

WHY CAN'T WE, WHO CLAIM TO BE MELAYU's AND CLAIM ISLAM TO BE OUR RELIGION CANNOT ABIDE TO DIVINE LAWS ?

IS ALLAH swt SENDING/WRITING US THE WRONG MESSAGE, AND IS NABI MUHAMMAD saw SAYING THE WRONG THINGS?

WHY MUST WE RESORT TO MAN MADE LAWS...WHICH IS FULL OF LIES AND DECEIT, AND FULL OF WEAKNESS!

CAN YOU IMAGINE THEY ARE RESORTING TO THAT PIECE OF PAPER TO JUSTIFY THEIR ACTIONS!

MAY ALLAH QUICKLY COME AND SAVE US ALL....FROM THE CLUTCHES OF THE EVIL HUMANS WE HAVE IN OUR COUNTRY...THEY ARE CALL POLITICIANS.....MAINLY FROM UMNO & BN

THEY HAVE SOLD THEIR SOULS TO THE DEVIL...FOR A VERY CHEAP PRICE !

WASIAT RAJA RAJA MELAYU

1. Kami namakan dan kami panggil akan dia, bumi yang kamu pijak dan langit yang kamu junjung Persekutuan Tanah Melayu (sekarang dikenali dengan nama Malaysia).

2. Kami isytiharkan dan kami simpan untuk kamu dan kami benarkan kamu isytihar dan simpan untuk anak cucu kamu, selain gunung-ganang, tasik dan hutan simpan, Tanah simpanan Melayu sehingga nisbah 50 peratus, selebihnya kamu rebutlah bersama-sama kaum lain.

3. Bagi menjaga kamu dan bagi melindungi anak cucu kami serta harta milik kamu, kami tubuhkan Rejiman Askar Melayu selain untuk membanteras kekacauan dalam negara dan ancaman dari luar negara.

4. Kami kekalkan dan kami jamin kerajaan dan kedaulatan raja-raja Melayu memerintah negara ini.

5. Kami isytiharkan Islam adalah agama Persekutuan.

6. Kami tetapkan bahasa kebangsaan ialah bahasa Melayu.

7. Kami amanahkan dan kami pertanggungjawabkan kepada raja-raja Melayu untuk melindungi kedudukan istimewa orang Melayu dan kepentingan sah kaum-kaum lain (kemudian ditambah kedudukan istimewa anak negeri Sabah dan Sarawak).

Wasiat ini disampaikan semasa raja-raja Melayu menurunkan tandatangan persetujuan pembentukan Perlembagaan Persekutuan Tanah Melayu pada 5 Ogos 1957.

THE MALAYSIAN CONSTITUTION SAYS: "A MALAY IS A PERSON BY FAITH A MUSLIM, A PERSON WHO SPEAKS MALAY LANGUAGE AND PRACTICES ITS’ CULTURE"


Saya amat sedih negara ini di permainkan sebegitu sahaja,

Sebagai seorang hamba kepada allah
kita harus mengambil kira semua di keliling kita:

Pokok,hutan,sungei,binatang, bulan,bintang,tanah,bukit,langit
ini semua kejadian illahi

Ini semua dia punya
kita hanya meminjam
bukan hak kita
semua orang pinjam sahaja
mana boleh kata kita punya

Semoga semua orang melayu
insafi diri dan jangan syirik kepada ALLAH swt
tempat syirik tidak ada lain NERAKA !

Jangan jadi sombong dan bongkak
jauh sekali jadi bodoh kepada politik manusia ynag sangat cerdik, akan tetapi kadang kala jadi sangat bodoh !

we cannot allow it to go ON!

FMZam said...

Dear Haezrikal,

I found solemn in your word and settle down to accept that RAMD is my eldest brother tasked to take care of all your children, me and all my brothers and my sisters. You have corrected my wrong perception about RAMD, I hope the Army can take step to correct the perception of many others who think alike before it gets blown out of propotion.

Thank you.

komando said...

Dear Folks the RAMD does not look after your children and the state..it is ALLAH SWT that we prey and doakan..for whatever we want IN THIS WORLD..

RUKUN IMAN !


MAY I SAY WE DO NOT HOPE FROM MERE HUMANS WHICH ARE JUST ANOTHER MORTAL !

Humans need his barakah, we need his guidance, we need his mercy, we DON'T NEED HUMANS TO GIVE US OUR DAILY BREAD..

KALAU LAH TUAN TUAN SEMUA PERCAYA DAN HARAPKAN MANUSIA BAGI REZEKI MAKA HANCUR LAH ORANG MELAYU ISLAM!

KALAU kita harap kepada manusia maka dapat lah marah ALLAH swt,

Jika kita harap kepada ALLAH swt MAKA DAPAT LAH MARAH MANUSIA!

SO PILIH LAH MANA YANG ANDA NAK SEKALIAN BUDIMAN !

DON'T WASTE TIME IT IS WRITTEN BUT NOT SEEN....

We can't live in denial for ever and ever !

DON'T BE LIKE UMNO PLEASE~

FMZam said...

Dear Haezrikal,

Sorry, silly me man, I found "solace" not "solemn". OMG!

I found solace in your word and settle down to accept that RAMD is my eldest brother tasked to take care of all your children, me and all my brothers and my sisters. You have corrected my wrong perception about RAMD, I hope the Army can take step to correct the perception of many others who think alike before it gets blown out of propotion.

Thank you.

FMZam said...

My thinking about RAMD is with you Bro Komando, so I let you lead the talk on this subject until some able body, come and contain your eruption from being blown out of proportion. For me, RGK, RRD are as infantry as RAMD that I believe you are more appropriate to lead on this discussion, although I opened it in this thread.

I was blunted by my own thought that RAMD is so big to have to let general from other corp to lead, just as other armies and even the US Army. That makes sense to me why RAMD is the king of of battle. And anywhere in this world, in any army, the infantry can never be smaller than other corps. So I thought the chances for other corp's general to lead the army is very, very rare.

And Haezrikal did me a fatherly talk, to take them as my eldest brother. And of course Dato' Arshad made my mind up with a picture that even in the RAMD itself, the potential generals are competing against each other to qualify as the best candidate.

And even if we turn this thing into democracy, the RAMD will still have the most chance to win in every election.

komando said...

The crust of the matter is not who is better and bigger OR STRONGER.

My dear friends we are talking about fair play..to one & to all.

After all aren't we ALL human beings no matter what color, creed or believes!

JUSTICE MUST BE SEEN TO HAPPEN AND MUST HAPPEN.

ISLAM TEACHES THAT
THE GREAT PROPHET MUHAMMAD PROVED IT CAN HAPPEN MORE THAN 1400 YEARS AGO!

HE DID NOT RULE WITH AN IRON HAND HE AIN'T ARROGANT, HE EXTENDED HIS HANDS EVEN TO HIS ENEMIES!

HE EVEN FORGAVE THOSE THAT TRANSGRESSED HIM.

He rule with justice and they admired and loved him .

CAN THE MALAYS WHO ARE MUSLIMS DO IT NOW. THOSE WHO ARE IN POWER NOW FROM PUTRAJYA, PARLIAMENT TO THE CABINET...EVEN IN MINDEF !

CHANGED THE ATTITUDE AND BE HUMBLE, WE OWE IT TO THIS NATION, WE NEED THE OTHERS TO MAKE THIS COUNTRY PROSPER, WE CANNOT SAY WE CAN STAND ALONE, NEVER !

Inequality and Injustice IS A SURE RECIPE FOR CATASTROPHE, PAK CHAD I AM SURE YOU REMEMBER BOSNIA!

WHAT HAPPENED AND WHY IT HAPPENED THERE!

HOW TO BECOME A CHIEF OF ARMY !

IN THE NZ ARMY THE PREVIOUS CHIEF WAS A LOGISTIC OFFICER, YES INDEED HE WAS!

WE SERVED TOGETHER AT ONE TIME IN SOMALIA.

HE WAS THE LOGISTIC HEAD IN UNOSOM HQ.

NEVER IN THIS COUNTRY WILL WE HAVE AN ARMY CHIEF FROM ANY OTHER BRANCH ACCEPT INFANTRY OR MUST BE A FORMER RAMD OFFICER, WHO CHANGED CORP ALONG THE LINE.

SO WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

TELL ME?

THE RECORDS ARE ALL AVAILABLE, PLEASE CHECK AND VERIFY MY STATEMENT!

The career path in our army is paved by corp wise, the highest post of each corp is the destiny, looks like no one can out run his destiny, he ends up there, where his corp stops expanding.

The combat support and service support units are all smaller and much smaller than the infantry, the most highest post is a 1-star and very rare of a 2-star, but we all know Corp Risik only recently being accorded with a "terminal" post of 3-star, for Lieutenant General Salleh Ismail. The mortality rate is much higher here. A young Corp chief with as much as 8 years of service left, will grow old and die there and maybe will get a "compassionate star" before retirement. That's the destiny set by human for this type of soldiers.

Leaving only the RAMD, RRD and RGK to run in the competition for the posts of Corp Commander, TPTD and PTD and finally PAT, where the bulk of candidates is obviously from a corp with the most stocks. And who has the most stocks amongst all these "PTD materials"? So far how many times we have a PTD from non-RAMD?

When we were cadets, how many of us realised that to reach the top military post you must join the right Corp? How many of us really think of it and how many of us simply don't care what Corp they join as long as they get commissioned as 'Pegawai". Even in cadet training, our destiny has been decided by "the Gods of RMC" and we only get to realise it after many many years later.

Even if there is war in this country, we still could not change this destiny for even if many infantry generals would have died in battles, they would be replaced by the chains of command.

We can probably change this by having Rejimen Askar Cina Malaysia, Rejimen Askar India Malaysia just like Barisan National and call our army as Tentera Darat Barisan Nasional Malaysia.

komando said...

RAMD HAS MANY NON MELAYU's - THEY ARE ARABS, MAMAK's, PAKISTANI's AND THE LIST CAN GO ON......

By having REGIMENTS Askar Cina and India also will not solve the problem..they will be still subservient to the ROYAL MALAY !

IT IS STALE MATE, THE FINAL WORD USED IS: ACCEPTABILITY !

SOMETHING WHICH IS SO SUBJECTIVE AND EASILY ABUSED ....TO THE CONVENIENCE OF THE POWER THAT BE!

FMZam said...

We have had the chance where cadets were sent for overseas training. These are "The creams of the country" and the selection for oversea training had also been destined by the "Gods" who channeled them into who go where, Sandhurst or Portsea or somewhere else, and where almost all Sandhurst trained cadets were drafted into RAMD. That is tradition, if not ritual.

Well Bro Komando, it is good you mean for acceptability, let RAMD be the king of battle for they must stand to their namesake Rejimen Askar Mati Dulu (RAMD). I am not ridiculing RAMD to say that because that was what I always heard them say while in service. To some it might sound a ridicule but to some who ventured into thinking, to be in that group to die first in battle, is an honour, to be in the front most position of any battle, any time.

tuahjebat said...

While sharing the frustration of guys like FMZam and many others wearing the "green" for living with discrimination for not being in RAMD, I also feel sorry for some very capable Navy and Air Force seniors who joined the same fate as the non-RAMD officers and just faded away.

We are living in the 21st Century
but our mind is still very small, confined and enjoying the glory of RAMD of the sixtiees when most RAMD seniors then were credible, capable, commanded the respect
and deserved to take up highest
positions in the military.

Look around us, the world has changed and so are strategies and tactics in order to suit to the changing environments and weapon systems. In the Malaysian Armed Forces, every effort is made to continue with the Army Infantry ( RAMD ) to be the PAT or for that matter the Panglima MAB! The lone RMN Admiral became the first non-army PAT few years back but it was a very hard decision made by Najib.

We are living in real world. While
the nation would continue to honour RAMD and the Army, we must never be blinded by RAMD emotion by accomodating questionable, sub-standard and perceived corrupted RAMD generals to take high positions in the Malaysian military.

Let us give the RMAF the chance to take up the top position in the nation's military thereby creating a history, only if the present RMAF Chief is capable and we hope he is NOT perceived as a corrupted general.

TIME FOR CHANGE!

FMZam said...

When a general is corrupt, he builds around him a powerful mechanism of corrupt allies from his subordinates to accomplices, to work in a protective circle as his sword and shield.

A corrupt general has no shame to be greedy for power and will stop at nothing to get even more power. As he gets more powerful, his protective circle will get more stronger to ensure him a safe and secured passage to the top.

The network of corruption in the military is not only the circle of the corrupt general, it links to other circles of corrupt elements including that of non-military.

You can know a corrupt general and a corrupt KSU, when they are evasive to your official complaint on corruption, because like the Devil, they fear those people who are so brave to fight the truth.

The problem with fighting corruption is summarized as, a small but well organized team of criminals can terrorize even a big but disorganised entire population. There's an organized criminals working in the military.

FMZam said...

Saudara TuahJebat,

Who are we to give any chance to PTU to become the next PAT? We don't have that voting power to elect him, the decision is solely with the MAT.

All we can do is pray along with you and hope that Allah will answer your prayer.

I believe you knew what you were talking when you suggested PTU as the next PAT, you must have heard something from the top to have said that.

You may not want to share with us why you said that, and I know it was not just a general statement, I can sense the peculiarity of confidence in your words.

I do not know if I can say that we cannot just pray but to translate our prayer into action first than only we pray to god. I do not if I can say that I have done that, though indirectly.
