KANGAR, Jan 25 (Bernama) -- The Raja Muda of Perlis, Brigadier General Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail, has decreed that officers and members of the 504 Regiment of the Territorial Army be placed in standby mode, so that they can be deployed whenever needed.
He also decreed that each Territorial Army Regiment officer and volunteer must have skills comparable with the regular troops, to ensure that the concept of augmentation can be implemented.
“This can be realised with an increase in (the number of Territorial Army members) undergoing military training with the regular army,” said Tuanku Syed Faizuddin, who is also the Commander of the 504 Regiment of the Territorial Army, in a statement issued by Istana Arau today.
Yesterday, Tuanku Syed Faizuddin granted an audience with the Deputy Commander of the 504 Regiment of the Territorial Army, Lieutenant Colonel Lasahi Laiji, at Bilik Persidangan, Galeri Di Raja Arau, to discuss the direction and planning of the regiment for this year.
Meanwhile, Lasahi urged young people in Perlis to attend the recruitment and selection process of the 504 Regiment of the Territorial Army, which will be held at the Bukit Keteri Camp from Jan 30 to Feb 3, starting at 8 am.
He said greater participation of youth in the Territorial Army would enable them to act as frontliners in facing any threat to the country.
