Taiping in the Merdeka Days
What did Taiping look like in the old days? We from Pulau Pangkor.com are always curious. Recently we received an email from Mr. Brian Paton.
He wrote: "I was stationed in Taiping in 1956-58 when it was called 2 Inf Workshop R.E.M.E. part of 28th Commonwealth Brigade". There is a lot more to tell about the 28th Commonwealth Brigade. For who is interested, please read more here.
The camp Mr. Brian Paton mentions is Kem Tentera Darat, Kamunting, Taiping, which is located a few kilometers away from the Taiping city center on the way to Kamunting, north of the Lake Gardens and the Zoo.
We asked him for some photos of those days. He did send us some awesome photos. Mr. Brian Paton has never been back to Malaysia since his days serving his country.
All commend below in quotes are by Mr. Paton. And yes, you can comment to Mr. Paton, click here to send your comment which will appear on the website.
We are very happy Mr. Brian Paton allowed us to publish these photos on the Pulau Pangkor website. As this page contains mostly photos, it may load a little slow, but I can promise, it's worth the waiting.
The Pictures above are made on patrol.
