CPM veteran Ah Hai (1919-2011) passed away
Shan Ru Hong, a CPM veteran also known as 'Ah Hai', or 'Ah Cheng' or 'Chen Rui', completed his missons in life and passed away at 92 on 30 March 2011, in southern Thailand. Ah Hai first met Pak Rashid (1917-2006) as fellow tin-mine workers in the Kinta Valley in Perak in 1930's when the Great Depression hit the working class of all races and their families very hard. Thereafter, their personal friendship and partisan comradeship lasted throughout their eventful lives as fighters as well as peace-makers for our tanahair. May him rest in everlasting peace.
