Author :ALK Tuesday, 25 Jun 2013

A symbolic handing and taking over ceremony of NDUM Sergeant Major Regiment (SMR), Warrant Officer 1 Hayazi bin Abdul Aziz and his successor Warrant Officer 1 Suhaimi bin Jusoh @Ibrahim was held on 21 June 2013 and officiated by the Commanding Officer of the NDUM Academy Military Training, Lt Col Wan Azni bin Wan Mohamad. The parade was led by PW 11 Nelak Jakong with 758 officers and staff of the Academy together with cadets of NDUM as audience at the Dataran Wawasan parade ground in NDUM.

The parade culminated with the handing over of the pace stick to the new SMR of NDUM by the outgoing SMR. Sergeant Major Regiment carries a Pace Stick as a symbol of their appointment. The Pace Stick is used to measure the correct length of pace. Historically the pace stick was used by Field Artillery Gun Teams to ensure correct distances between the guns on the battlefield, thus ensuring the appropriate effective fire.

PW 1 Hayazi was appointed the SMR of NDUM in 2009 and relinquishes his appointment to his replacement Warrant Officer 1 Suhaimi bin Jusoh @Ibrahim, before moving on to be the new SMR of the Army Field Command Headquarters based in Sungai Besi Camp.
