IPOH:The Historical Military Artifacts Exhibition in Malaya, held at Hotel Casuarina Meru here, became fascinating with a live history storytelling session.
Interestingly, those delivering this narrative were dressed in 1940s military attire, creating a realistic atmosphere for visitors.
They are members of a non-governmental organization (NGO), the Malaya Historical Group (MHG).
This event was organized by the Perak State Public Library Corporation as part of the ‘Talks by Perak Warriors’ program.
The Chief Researcher of MHG, Shaharom Ahmad, said they were honored to be invited to exhibit at the event.
He mentioned that the program provided exposure to the public about the sacrifices made by the nation’s heroes in defending the country from communist threats.
Veterans who were involved and school students also attended the event.
“There were many shared experiences from these veterans who recounted their time in the national security forces.
“They were also excited to see items they once used during their service,” he said.
He added that they hope this program will continue in the coming years to foster the spirit of love, respect and appreciation of the nation’s heroes.
The program was inaugurated by the Perak State Executive Councillor for Education, Higher Education, Youth, and Sports, Khairudin Abu Hanipah.
