  1. Not sure if this has been done before!!!

    Malaysia, will be celebrating Independence Day ths Friday (31st August 2007)

    Tens of thousands of troops fought in the former British colony during a state of emergency from 1948 to 1960. They were awarded the medal by the king of Malaysia in 2004, but it has never been recognised by the Foreign Office.

    Approx 100 veterens will be in Kuala Lumpur wearing the medal, the Pingat Jasa Malaysia.... will they be breaking any UK laws?
