The contributions of Commonwealth veterans to Malaysia were duly recognised when the Perak state government hosted the “Veterans’ Night” at Syuen Hotel, Ipoh recently. These former soldiers who hail from Australia, Great Britain, New Zealand and other Commonwealth countries come to Ipoh annually for the numerous memorial services on the card.
Most are members of the National Malaya and Borneo Veterans Association of Incorporated Australian States. The association chairman, Mr David Kent was in attendance. David was glad that their presence was cherished by the people of Perak.
