Posting ini WZWH dan blogger Untold History merungkai misteri meriam Istana Kota Beram, Pekan Pahang.
Sorry to Abg Wan Zamzuri, Hj Karbaid, Redza Khalid and many more fans2 blog ni pasal buat2 tak kenal bile korang post kt FB aku...
I'm living 2 lives dude.. and prefer to separate it that way.
As xnak menghampakan Bro Wan Zamzuri.. aku dedicate this page utk dia lah sebab dia tanye posting baru.
Korang tentu familiar pasal episode ni : Untold History : The Cursed Canons of Pulau Aur
Kesemua meriam tersebut marked with "F" and "1782" on the other side.
Tempatnya di Istana Beram, Pekan Pahang..
Dekat depan muzeum ni ade 2 meriam.
BUT NONE of them marked with "F" or "1782"...
Yang ada cume.... kalau ko berdiri mengadap Istana Beram, Meriam sebelah kiri :
Marked with "P"..
While, yang sebelah kanan :
Takde marking dekat atas mcm Meriam sebelah kiri.. tapi.. marking dia dekat :
1. Is "P" mistaken as "F" oleh JT Thompson???
2. Sape punye meriam yang marking as "AB" itu..
Quest for this Meriam masih berjalan. And aku belum stop kt situ je.. will keep updating..
Mengikut para sarjana, jenis meriam yang digunakan orang-orang Melayu tidaklah diketahui namun mereka berpendapat bahawa tidak lama selepas teknologi senjata api diperkenalkan oleh bangsa Arab kepada dunia, orang-orang Melayu sudah mula membuat senjata api sendiri.
Bukti aktiviti pembuatan senjata api ini direkodkan oleh W. Linehan didalam kertas kerjanya yang berjudul Some Discoveries on the Tembeling. Di tebing-tebing Sungai Tembeling yang terletak di Pahang, Linehan telah menjumpai acuan-acuan purba yang digunakan untuk membuat meriam yang dianggarkan seawal kurun ke 13 atau 14.
WZWH percaya Lembah Tembeling sejak sebelum zaman Kesultanan Melaka telah menjadi pengeluar utama meriam sebagai weaponry perang di Pahang.
Seterusnya blogger Untold History cerita lagi dalam posting...
"F 1782" is the Cypher etched at Canons buried in Pulau Aur. Local history recorded that those canons were from Dutch ship.. wrecked in attack by Malay pirate near Pulau Aur.
Pada 1849, JT Thompson.. a British officer doing survey in Pulau Aur recorded that there were 1 large canon laying infront of the house of tribal leader of Pulau Aur. And 4 other canons buried at the coast of Pulau Aur.
In 1980's.. Badan Warisan Johor recorded the picture of that canons.. which i lost in my collection.
100 years later.. in 1948, bila CA Gibson Hill went to Pekan, Pahang.. there were similar canons lies infron of Kota Beram Palace.. cypher "F" with 1782 marked on the side of the cannon.
So... in 1948.. Dato' Dalam, Pahang minister recorded that those canons were confiscated from Tok Kaya Bichol who went at war with Dutch.. whose "Bichol" were later known as Tun Koris.. a elder son of Bendahara Tun Mutahir.
When pahang were at war with Sultan Abu Bakar Johore.. Tun Ahmad conqued Pulau Aur and taken the canons back to Pekan.
In Pahang Annals recorded that Tun Ahmad confiscated 4 canons.. 2 of which were lost at sea near Sungai Pulau Tambun.. while 2 of it were taken to Istana Kota Beram Pekan Mosque.
Both of the canons were still there till today.
A classical reference can be seen in books published by Badan Warisan Johor.. quite imiginative, saying that these canons.. in certain numbers of days of a year, exploded themself. The booming sound can be heard as far as Pekan Pahang.. 160km away.. calling the other canons (which lay in Kota Beram Palace).
Ain't believe this shit.. but.. in 1982.. HMS Raja Jarom, a Malaysian Royal Frigate were ordered to take 3 of these canons in Pulau Aur and transported it to Johor Palace. 2 smaller canons were taken away.. while 1 large canon were left unmolested at the beach.
This 2 canons now in Johore.. indisclosed location.
2 months after HMS Raja Jarom visits Pulau Aur and taken those canons.. she were involve in bloody accident near the coast of Singapore.. 3 Malaysian Royal Navy deads. All of them having same name.. "Ahmad".. and all of them were in charge in transferring the canons to Johor palace.
Now.. name "puaka" begin to make sense...
In 1849.. JT Thompson reported that.. 1 canon in house of tribal leader of Pulau Aur
In 1948.. CA Gibson Hill reported that.. 4 more canons buried at coast of Pulau Aur
In 1860's.. Pahang Chronicle reported that.. Tun Ahmad taken 4 canons to Kota Beram Pakace.. which 2 lost at sea.
In 1982.. HMS Raja Jarom Frigate = ordered to take 3 canons.. 1 were left at Pulau Aur
To sum everything.. :
1 + 4 + 4 + 3.. total of 11 canons in Pulau Aur
But.. record in 1948 saying 4 canons.. while HMS Raja Jarom reported that in 1982 only 3 canons.. who take another 1 canon??
That for you to find out
Supplement Notes :
and... cypher "F" is not a Dutch making.. very unfamiliar associated with Dutch... ... so..whose canons that acctually are?????
Those canons are there... but their 'treasures' and the shipwreck... just lie not far from.......WT"F". hahahahahahahahhaa
