Notes from author:
There is a new doctor's name which I found tonight, and that is Dr SH Al-Junied. He was listed under the Singapore Board of Management of the Teaching Hospital. I guess this referred to the University of Malaya based in Singapore in September 1949. This was after WWII. His name was listed with a few other doctors whom I have included in my books published in 2012. I have not come across his name before in my research on The Early Malay Doctors. I wonder where the family members are today; they should be in Singapore.
