Standing in the front, we can see Raja Perempuan Kelsom (widow of Almarhum Sultan Iskandar Shah), Raja Perempuan Khadijah (consort of Sultan Abdul Aziz), Sultan Abdul Aziz and Tengku Permaisuri Che Teh (widow of Almarhum Sultan Iskandar Shah) on the rightmost aspect, from left to right.

Thanks to Raja Fauziah binti Raja Harun Al-Rashid, some of the ladies standing in the middle row are identified as (from left to right): Raja Norzihan binti Raja Harun Al-Rashid, [unknown], [unknown], Raja Nor Anuar binti Raja Harun Al-Rashid, Raja Nor Baizura binti Raja Harun Al-Rashid, Raja Mandak (Tengku Ummul Banin) binti Sultan Amaluddin and Raja Norshidah binti Raja Harun Al-Rashid (Permaisuri Deli). We would appreciate any kind readers who are able to complete the list pertaining the two unnamed ladies to write your comments below.

  1. New info:
    1) Raja Razman (Ku Nick): 5th in the back row
    2) Raja Shahar Shah: 6th in the back row
    3) Raja Perempuan Kelsom: 4th standing in front


  2. Salams,

    I believe standing 3rd from the left, front row, was Raja Fatimah (Tah Selangor) ibni Almarhum Sultan Idris I.

    And standing rightmost, 2nd row, was Raja Halijah (Raja Permaisuri Deli) ibni Almarhum Sultan Abdullah.

    Likewise, I stand corrected.

  3. Salams,

    Having visited the page of the Sultanate of Deli, the lady standing at the extreme right of the 2nd row may not be Raja Halijah ibni Almarhum Sultan Abdullah after all.

    She looks so much like Tengku Ampuan Deli Raja Nurshida bt Raja Kechil Sulong Raja Harun Al Rashid, whose husband was Sultan Osman Al Sani Perkasa Alam of Deli. A prominent picture of the couple taken in the 1950s can be viewed at the said Sultanate of Deli site.

  4. Back row left to right: 1) Raja Kecil Sulong Harun Al Rashid (my father) 2) Raja Idris Iskandar,
    3) Raja Bendahara Abdul Rashid, 4) Sultan Deli, 5) Raja Nick Razman, 6) Raja Shahar Shah Harun Al Rashid
    2nd row (middle row) left to right: 1) Raja Norzihan Harun Al Rashid, 2) unknown, 3) unknown, 4) Raja Nor Anuar Harun Al Rashid, 5) Raja Nor Baizura Harun Al Rashid 6) Raja Mandak, 7) Raja Norshidah Harun Al Rashid (Permaisuri Deli)
