    • I think you got the wrong Raja Musa. The Raja Musa is the photo is from Selangor (son of Raja Bhot), the first Malay lawyer and he died in 1943.

      Raja Musa bin Raja Mahadi who was the headboy of MCKK in 1923 was born in 1903.

  3. YM Raja Musa Raja Mahadi, this is the 1st time I see his picture as a boy. Do you have any higher resolution? He is my great grandfather.
