Remark :

This is the first part of the series, taken at Kampong Lanjut Tin Dredge Limited. These pictures were taken in conjunction with the visit of HRH the Duke of Edinburgh to Malaya in November 1956. We don't know much about these pictures, many of which were damaged by water.

Below is a short YouTube video of HRH's visit, back in 1956:

The first picture (extreme left) shows the dredge, while the third picture shows HRH and the entourage exiting a Royal Navy Wessex helicopter. The fifth picture (second from right) shows George Seddon (in dark sunglasses) - the General Manager of Anglo-Oriental - escorting HRH the Duke through the dredge.
