Bersama Rakyat is one of the great events of the year where scouts can meet the king. Right after the Sultan Birthday Celebration, the Sultan goes around to all districts to meet up with loyal subjects. SOAS College Air Scout never miss assembling in town for this auspicious occasion. Sometimes the king will stop and have a moment to talk with scout members. Though not common practice, the Sultan sometimes allow "selfie"moments with scout members. One of our patrol leaders had the golden opportunity to do this with the king. 

The occasion was also covered in the news paper and our troop picture was one of the highlights. This is indeed one of the memorable moments for scout members that would never come again once they have grown up and move on to adulthood.
