I believe this is the medal recently approved for British troops who fought in Malaya during the Emergency. Can't remember whether they finally got approval to wear it or not. I remember there was a kerfuffle.

Very nice Hugh! :D

Might be of interest, Brooke's great grandson is back in town and checking out his old family haunts:

A couple of nice pieces, and it doesn't sound as though he's a twit. Good for him!

Thanks for sending the links.

Hugh--

Thanks agin for this wonderful information and illos!!

Wing Commander O'Toole, besides many other works, wrote a "Medal Collector" article on Sarawak awards in the 1960s. I don't have access to that now but believe the Star Order originated in 1928 and had the old or first type insignia from then until 1946. If I remember correctly, another iteration of the Star of Sarwak insignia existed from 1970-83 and a further insignia change ran from 1983-88 when yet another version apparently appeared. Right now, the Liverpool Medals site displays a ladies 5th class of what may be the 1970-83 type. I remember that a KL ex-pat bar, maybe near the new Regent Hotel, had a couple of cases of awards displayed in the late 1990s.

Didn't the Order of the Star of Hornbill first come into being in the 1973 regulations?

PS "kerfuffle" has serious connations in some circles!!!

Wonderful (if distracting when I am working on South Korea!!!!).

Regarding the Order of the Star of Sarawak - it was instituted by Brooke on 28 September 1928 in 3 classes (Master, Companion and Officer) + Sovereign and Grand Master. The order was revived by the Sarawak state government after independence on 10 July 1964 and expanded, under the name Panglima Negara Bintang Sarawak.

Regarding the General Service Medal 1965, the official position is 'may be accepted as a keepsake but should not be worn.' However as virtually everyone entitled is retired, they can wear what they please as they are not subject to Queen's Regulations! So it adorns many a proud chest, I am glad to say.

First thanks to Megan and 922F, for the history on this. Now, who among you can identify the dates of my two orders? I would suspect that they are of the two most recent generations, just because they were still in manufacture in the '90's. Don't know a thing about the Star of Hornbill / dates, but have included a list of Sarawak ODM. Can't be sure about where I got it, but probably from a State website.

Thanks to you both,

I'll need some help from you all on these next two. I may be a little confused about what I've actually got, but these are my notes from the time. Any clarification welcome.

Same issue here; not entirely sure that my notes are correct. Comments? Is this order known to have a military and civil division? Or, in accordance with Megan's earlier note, could this be just a later / earlier generation?

MALAYSIA-SARAWAK - Datuk Amar Bintang Kenyalang (DA), 2nd Class, Darjah Utama Yang Amat Mulia Bintang Kenyalang Sarawak (The Most Eminent Order of the Most Esteemed Star of Kenyalang Sarawak), neck badge, new style, Mint (Badge similar to but slightly different from DA (MA18 described above. Men's Civil Division may differ from previous?
