This was not taken in Ipoh, but we thought of sharing this rare find with all of you. These photos were part of a series, taken back in 1956 (some were faded, some were damaged).

Here we have HRH the Duke of Edinburgh visiting a dredge in Jinjang. The gentleman in the dark sunglasses is George Seddon – the General Manager of Anglo-Oriental. We know the photos are not as clear as they should be, but can you recognise any of the other gentlemen?

    Yes, in the photo on the right, standing between Prince Philip and George Seddon is Doug (later Sir Douglas) Waring. If you need information about him, let me know.

    I may also recognize two other people in the photographs but would need a higher-resolution image to be sure.

      Dear felicia

      About Doug Waring: if you want more information about him, let me know.

      We welcome more names, but no rush…take your time.

      I may recognize two other people in the photographs but would need a higher-resolution image to be sure.
