Some Final Preparations Before the Reburial on 27 July 2011.

The State of Sarawak is doing its utmost to ensure that Iban traditions and ancient rites are adhered to in bringing the remains of the Iban Trackers and Sarawak Rangers home to Sarawak and rebury them in the Heroes' Graves in Kuching on 27 July 2011.

Here is the latest report from The Borneo Post daily.

These are the little jars where the remains will be kept in.


  1. CY,

    Thanks. I have been invited to attend the reburial ceremony on 27 July 2011. Being the prime mover of the project, I have been invited to give the first speech which I gladly accept. There are a lot of things I wanted to tell Sarawakians. I also have written a poem dedicated to these brave warriors, which I would like to read at the end of my speech.

  2. TQ Tuan, nice to have a Soldiers like you. A TRUE SOLDIERS WILL NEVER DIES BUT IT'S JUST FADE AWAY....

  8. Sir, as an Old Boy from Boys Wing, RMC, i have always attached myself to malaysia's history, especially the army. there are no higher hero than soldiers who fought and died for my country, and for that i thank you. honestly, i only knew about ops mai pulai from reading utusan online (i've been overseas for more than 8 years). anyway, i can't thank you enough for your military service and courageous effort to defend Malaysia, and for your effort in making Ops Mai Pulai a reality. I'm no Sarawakian, but I'm Malaysian. Anyone who protect and defend my country will always have my utmost respect and gratitude. keep up the good work.

    Dear Afif,

    Thank you for the kind words.

  10. By now the ceremony to rebury the fallen rangers would have been over. I am glad they are home at last. As a Sarawakian I salute them and all who made this home coming possible especially you colonel.

    We have our today because of them.

    Good bless them.

  11. Dear Robert,
    Our Fallen Warriors are finally back in Tanah Kenyalang Negeri Sarawak. Like many others, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your noble, tireless and compassionate effort to accomplish Operation Ngerapuh.

  12. Salam Tuan,

    Saya sebagai anak kepada bekas tentera mengucapkan tahniah dan merasa amat gembira serta bangga dengan kejayaan 'Op Ngerapuh' yang dilancarkan atas inisiatif tuan. Kesinambungannya iaitu 'Op Mai Pulai' juga telah berjalan dengan lancar, Alhamdulillah....

    Hari ini merupakan satu lagi cacatan sejarah yang akan termaktub dalam diari Pasukan Renjer khasnya dan negeri Sarawak amnya iaitu kepulangan 'Bujang Berani' untuk menjadi yang terawal bersemadi di Memorial Pahlawan yang pertama di negeri Sarawak.

    Walaupun arwah bapa saya dari Kor Armor dan saya hanya kakitangan kerajaan biasa yang pernah meyertai pasukan kadet, saya tetap merasakan bahawa semua anggota keselamatan adalah bersaudara kerana kita semua berjuang untuk negara yang sama.

    Sekali lagi tahniah dan tabik hormat dari saya untuk tuan.
