His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam feted thousands of uniformed personnel from various uniformed government agencies and associations to a banquet last night in conjunction with the caring monarch's 65th birthday celebration.

The annual tradition held in conjunction with His Majesty's birthday celebration, the banquet hall that accommodated thousands of uniformed personnel was decorated with fresh flora.

The event was graced by Her Majesty Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Hjh Saleha, HRH Prince Hj Al-Muhtadee Billah, the Crown Prince, HRH Paduka Seri Pengiran Anak Isteri Pengiran Anak Sarah, HRH Prince Hj Sufri Bolkiah, YAM Pengiran Bini Hajah Faizah Dato Haji Nasir, HRH Prince Hj Jefri Bolkiah, HRH Prince Hj 'Abdul 'Azim, HRH Prince 'Abdul Malik, HRH Prince 'Abdul Mateen, HRH Princess Hjh Rashidah Sa'adatul Bolkiah, HRH Princess Hjh Majeedah Nuurul Bolkiah and other members of the royal family.

Uniformed personnel invited for the banquet consisted of the Royal Brunei Armed Forces, Royal Brunei Police Force, Fire and Rescue Department, Royal Customs and Excise Department and Brunei Scouts and Girl Guides Associations etc.

After the dinner, His Majesty greeted all the uniformed personnel in attendance.

The uniformed personnel carry on their shoulders the responsibility of maintaining the security and sovereignty of the nation.

The police play no lesser role in upholding the law, maintaining peace and securing the prosperity of the nation. They form the backbone of law and order in the country.

The contribution and importance of the Fire and Rescue Services is also significant as they also put their lives on the line in rescuing people and saving properties.

The voluntary uniformed personnel, such as the Red Crescent, Scouts and even uniformed cadets play an important role in community affairs and development.

These associations play an important role in moulding the youths to be responsible and caring individuals with good character and in times of need, these associations always lend a helping hand to society.
