We have received another message of suppport from Malaysia - this time from a man who served in the Royal Malaysian Navy.
The message reads:
Your photos have brought back a lot of memories. I was serving in the Royal Malaysian Navy aboard KD TANJONG MERANG and used to alongside at Teluk Ayer Basin for stand off. Used to see quite a number of CMS and the ICKFORD Class standing off in the day and slipping off in the afternoon for respective patrol areas around Singapore.
I know how you all suffer especially those serving on patrol craft like ours and I sincerely think you deserve to wear the medal.
