45 Penyamun to be exact.
In mainstream media.. particularly from Singapore's source... some reports details on Indian Mutiny were missing ; in pointing out the direct roles of HH Sultan Ibrahim, lead his own army, by his own command in capturing 180 fully armed renegades from British Army..
47 killed by this penyamun.. mostly high ranked British officer.. and 1 from JMF army.
This event has shock the foundation of British Rules in Singapore..
sampaikan.. helps from detechment armies of Russia, French dan Jepun di kerah untuk menolong.... but, in the end... The Brassball HH Sultan Ibrahim jugak kasi settle masalah dorang without firing a single bullet..
The Twisted History
Singapore historian try to denying fact that is no direct role by Sultan Ibrahim, by not mentioning his roles and JMF roles over the incident..
Somehow, these document.. produced by Johore Royal Courts in 1955, shed a glimpse of the incidents :
45 orang penyamun itu... datang dengan fully loaded guns and armor... mengadap Sultan.. salam cium tangan... dan menyerahkan senjatanya di kaki Sultan
THE ORIGIN OF NICKNAME "BRASSBALL"
This is fully loaded gun.. and the sultan only few feet away.. the rebel easily catch the sultan and held ransom for their freedom = on which the British Government must obey..
But, it not happen..
One.. plus another and another brassball incident of showing off his bravery in cheating death lead him to be known as 'the oxonion brassball' by Scottish newspaper... and.. that is why i refer him as the "Brassball".. ramai sgt nak tau knape aku panggil dia "Brassball"..
ANOTHER ACCOUNT ; FROM COLONIAL OFFICE UK
Long after that.. baru aku jumpa his report, written by he himself to British Military Administration.. detailing his roles and JMF pertaining this incidents :
Dalam document ni.. ade ditulis satu tempat bernama "The Fort".. or kubu..
Dimana??? as we know.. tiada 'kubu' di Johor Bahru as mcm Kubu Ngah Ibrahim..
