Malaya 1942 - Why I created this blog

I'm a great fan of Malayan history and for me creating this blog helps to preserve some of the stories that happened during the war. It's been more than 60 years ago and in some ways Malaysians in general seems to have forgotten the contributions of the British, Indian, Gurkhas and Locals who gave up their lives defending Malaya.

As I'm now living in Kuala Lumpur I will from time to time share some of the stories, pictures locations where some of the battles happen. My dream is to one day be able to open a museum commemorating the title of this blog. Thank you for reading.
