  1. I am a member of the Malayan Volunteers Group or MVG. We are the former volunteer servicemen who served in Malaya in WW2 and during the 1st Emergency or their immediate family members or descendants. We are a British-based organisation and I am its sole Malaysian member at present. My grand-uncles gave their lives to defend Malaya in WW2.

    The MVG is not only focused on the Federated Malay States Volunteer Force (FMSVF) but also includes the Straits Settlement Volunteer Force (SSVF) which fought to the bitter in Singapore, the Malayan Volunteer Air Force, Unfederated Malay States Volunteer Force, Johor State Volunteers, and other units.

    The badge you are displaying in this blog is the MVG one. The FMSVF badge is quite different and you can view it in some of the photos in the MVG website. I am quite happy to answer any questions anyone may have.
