The British High Commission to Malaysia hosted the 2017 Remembrance Day Service at The National Monument (Tugu Negara) in honour of fallen our British and Malaysian heroes across World War I and II, as well as the Malayan Emergency from 1948-1960. 

In her opening address to various guests and ambassadors from over 200 countries, H.E. Vicki Treadell said "It is a day to remember and honour those who fought on all sides and who served their countries in both World Wars and conflicts since. It is an important occasion for us to show our gratitude and give thought to those who have died, suffered injury and loss, and to those who continue to suffer today."

Andrew Sill, BMCC Chairman and Head of Commercial Banking at HSBC Malaysia was present at the service to lay a wreath and pay respects on behalf of the Chamber.
