  1. Lt Col Ali Muzaffar Zaidi (SSH-1) says:

    Dear Kamran,
    I am really indebted to you for giving us this lost treasure because this was my long cherished desire to see my Pl. Since I lost the group photo long time before therefore finding no means to retrieve that. This shows un-diminished feelings of love and affiliation that evolved during the onset of soldierly career in great institution, PMA.

    I wish all my surviving Pl Mates and Course Mates and their families a healthy, prosperous and long life where ever they are. And those who left us bereaved, may Allah raise their status in Jannah (Ameen).

  2. Maj Rehmat Elahi (GHR-3) says:

    Nice to see old & gold memories of brother officers.

  3. Major M Ejaz Baig (SSH-1) says:

    Dear Kamran,
    I thank you first of all for this wonderful contribution that will stay alive in the Native Pakistan in future. Credit goes to Cheema who provided means to achieve this, thanks to him as well. I too was in SSH-5 initially with Maj Saleem Malik until platoon was disbanded.

  4. Capt Rana Muhammad Sadiq (SSH-5) says:

    Thanks a lot. Although I was posted out to SSH-5 but I still feel part of SSH-1. Great memories!!!

  5. Lt Col Rashid Zia Cheema (ABD-1) says:

    Dear Kamran,
    Thank you for contributing this Group Photo. May Allah give highest place in Janat to departed souls آمین.

    • Lt Col Kamran Gul Abdullah (SSH-1) says:

      I was initially in SSH-5 and Maj Saleem Akhtar Malik (Late Gen Akhtar Malik’s son) was our Pl Comd. A true soldier, he left PMA on his own to join his unit during the 1971 War. SS-H5 was disbanded and I was placed in SSH-4. After mid term, SSH-5 was raised again and I was placed in SSH-5, After being destriped as Pl Sgt, I was placed in SSH-1 and appointed Cpl. But my heart and soul always remained with SSH-4 as I always missed the company of my friends Ajmi, Qaisar Rashid, Shahid Hameed, Abdullah Niazi (Late) and Shafqat Ullah.

      • Lt Col Rashid Zia Cheema (ABD-1) says:

        Dear Kamran,
        Just to avoid the duplicity, you would be counted in SSH-1 because you were in this Platoon on Passing Out day. ‘Saaray nug vee tay pooray karnay nein’. 🙂

        • Lt Col Kamran Gul Abdullah (SSH-1) says:

          No regrets. I was back in the company of Irfan Wali and Khalid Hasan, my old Govt College Lahore class mates, and Maj Saeed uz Zafar was a wonderful Pl Comd.
