Trip to Malaysia 28th August to 12th September 2017
This Trip was originally organised by John Meacham for Solent Branch who have graciously
opened it up to the Association
This will take in the 60th Anniversary of Independence “Merdeka” This is a golden opportunity,
indeed the last for most of us. To get the best deal we have got to book and pay as early as
possible due to the decline of pound. Places are limited, therefore please contact John early if
Information from John
Things are finally moving on the proposed trip to Malaysia in 2017. We have now in place details of
cost (may vary depending on the strength of the pound at the time of booking), flights and hotels during
our stay in Kuala Lumpur and Penang. Prices are based on 2 people sharing, however, I have asked
and I'm waiting for cost of single supplements. We are using the same company as we used in 2007,
which was Peoples Travel (formally Emerald Travel).
The trip will take much the same format as 2007, 4 days in Kuala Lumpur to take part in the 60th
Independence Parade and celebrations, then flying to Penang for 10 days for a spot of R&R, although,
I would like to arrange a couple of visits out while we are in Penang, to the War memorial and if it can
be arranged a visit to either a Military unit or Veterans Association.
I have been in contact with the Assistant British Military Defence Adviser in Kuala Lumpur who is now
assisting with our stay, also we have a Malaysian Liaison Office who I've been in contact with. All the
relevant authorities in Malaysia are now aware of our intentions.
For those who missed the travel details, they will me at the end of this email.
Although plans are limited at this time, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
