Passing The Baton

Nostalgia series #3

It was reported in the press today that OP Tan Sri Dr Munir Majid will be relinquishing his position as Chairman of the Board in MAS. He'll be passing the baton over to OP Tan Sri Mohd Nor Yusof effective from Aug 01, 2011.

I managed to rummage through some old black and white prints a while ago. Not quite clear but enough to recognize familiar faces. It brought back fond memories of school days at the RMC.

I believe OP Mohd Nor (Tan Sri) was also there that morning before we set out. He could be with another group for the exercise. His image did not appear in either of the snapshots.

Some 47 Years Later. These are recent snapshots.
