More Seri Pahlawan Gagah Perkasa OP detected.

The Seri Pahlawan Gagah Perkasa, or SP award, is the highest federal award one could obtain. It superseed all the Dato' and Tan Sri's and all the fancy me-mancy award one could get (either through proper award process, or by *window shopping*)

So far, after the flashback of the news of OP Jalil Ibrahim that was post humanously confered the award, i've managed to track down, with the help of the OPA network, 2 others receipients of this award.

One of them is the Late OP Mohanchandran Velayutham, (Army Captain, Renjer) 1963-1964 Alpha Company.

He was killed in battle at the Kinta Valley Forest Reserves. Excerpt from this battle is available here.
(many thanks to Major(R) D. Swami)

The other one is OP Hamid Awang, 64-66 Alpha Company.

I shalt try to get more detail on OP Hamid Awang.

Malaysian heros, and those that faught and believe in what they faught for, should be remembered. I truly believe the younger generations and generations to come must be aware of all the sacrifices our forefather has done, so that all of us now could live in peace and harmony.

To all of you braveheart, I Salute You.
