Plaque in Westminster Abbey
those who served Malaya
On a visit to the Abbey in 1965 I was
surprised to find on the North wall of the Cloisters a Memorial Plaque.
Once again some ten years ago I visited the
Abbey with my two eldest grand children and showed them this Plaque.
In recent years I tried to get members of
the N.M.B.V.A. interested but had little response.
