One of the heart- rending scene when the remains reached Kuching.

Regretfully, my plan to make a research in London did not materialised.

Rizal


Since the last item on this subject I have been in touch with the originator of the blog that started this subject off and, for everyones interest, here is his response:

Oh! Great! I'm in the process of making my research on the exploits of the Iban Trackers and Sarawak Rangers which will finally lead me to write a book on them.  I'm now digging whatever I could find in the archives of Sarawak Museum. Sometime in October 2009, I will be going to London to do more researches. I know, the War Museum there have plenty of records.

As you can read from my blog, the Government of Sarawak has agreed with my plan to bring all the remains of the Iban Trackers and Sarawak Rangers back to Kuching.

                           Lt Col Robert Rizal Abdullah (Retd)  Ex- Malaysian Rangers.

As Moderator George is the expert on the Sarawak Rangers no doubt we shall be able to make some small contribution to Rizal Abdullah's research.

Sorry Apai Tuai George. These last few weeks we are very much preoccupied with our 14th General Election, in trying to find a suitable government for the people. Glad to say we have the government that we have wished for. Secondly, I am running out of topic that I can talk about. My book THE IBAN TRACKERS AND SARAWAK RANGERS 1948 - 1963 is near ready. I am trying to find sponsors to print the book including a translated version of my autobiography into Bahasa Malaysia.

By the way George, do you still keep the two-page write up you have on the door sign? I have given all to Sarawak Museum without keeping a photocopy!

Sometime in 2010 I helped made this documentary film on Iban Trackers entitled The Last Journey to Sarawak.
