Celluloid memories: A group photo with Almarhum Sultan Abdul Aziz

Raja Ngah Ali is seen here standing in the middle, in between Almarhum Sultan Abdul Aziz (left) and Almarhum Raja Muda Yussuf Izzudin. Also present in the photo are Raja Badri Shah bin Raja Harun Al Rashid (standing leftmost) and Raja Amin Shah (on Raja Ngah Ali's left). This photo was possibly taken c. 1938-41.

The event during which this photo was taken is not known and shows Almarhum Sultan Abdul Aziz with Raja Muda Yussuf Izzudin, Raja Ngah Ali bin Raja Iskandar, Raja Amin Shah bin Raja Ali and Raja Badri Shah bin Raja Harun Al Rashid (private secretary to Almarhum Sultan Abdul Aziz at that time).

Raja Ngah Ali bin Raja Iskandar was at this time the Raja Kechil Bongsu and was later Raja Kechil Sulong. He was the great-grandson of Almarhum Sultan Ali Al-Mukammal Inayat Shah (SP24 1865-1871).

Raja Amin Shah bin Raja Ali interestingly was the great-grandson of both Almarhum Sultan Abdullah Muhammad Shah I (SP22 1851-1857) and Almarhum Sultan Jaafar Muazzam Shah (SP23 1857-1865), as his grandparents were Raja Pandak Abdul Rahman ibni Almarhum Sultan Abdullah Muhammad Shah I and Raja Nandak binti Almarhum Sultan Jaafar. This point is of some interest as Almarhum Sultan Abdullah I was embroiled in a civil war with Almarhum Sultan Jaafar (at that time Raja Muda and was effectively the de facto Sultan during the war) from 1851 to 1857.
