  1. Salams Engku,
    Firstly,Kudos on the great blog site and I dare say that it’s one of the most informative sites on Malaysian history.

    I am currently researching for a book on our heroes of World war 2 and cannot but help notice that you do not have anything on one of your home grown heroes-Raja Aman Shah.Do you have any info on him?
