I see from the articles and posts sent in by members, we can come up with a coffee table book about the Royal Malaysian Artillery, from the days of our formation until today and also the future, maybe. I am sure there are many stories about our past opertional and administrative experiences that can be told such as the 'escape' experience of Lt Kol (Rtd.) Hamzah Bachek, the MALBATT and other UN sponsored peacekeeping duties experience where gunners were also involved, Brig Gen Dato' Hussein Kamal's and Maj Gen (Rtd.) Dato' Wahid's experiences when performing their duties in Liberia, etc., etc. Of course Kol (Rtd.) Lai has a lot of stories to tell too. Others who are waiting on the line can also start coming with their stories, e.g. Lt Kol (Rtd.) Heera, Lt Gen (Rtd) Datuk Aziz, Lt Gen (Rtd.) Dato' Jaafar, Lt Kol (Rtd.) David Lam, Lt Kol (Rtd.) Masoud, Lt Kol (Rtd) Ahmad Daud, Brig Gen (RTD) Dato' Yusoff Said, Maj Gen Dato' Mokhtar Parman, who will be retiring soon, and all the other retired senior officers, officers and men from the Malaysian Royal Artillery.
I am willing to take up and coordinate this assignment and perhaps to get sponsors as well. I am sure others will also want to volunteer and provide assistance to make this assignment successful.
Capt. (Rtd.) Hussaini Abdul Karim
