Royal Ranger Regiment

An infantry regiment of the Malaysian Army. It originated from the Sarawak Rangers, established in 1862 under the White Rajah, Charles Brooke. Absorbed into the Malaysian Army, the rangers developed a fearsome reputation as fierce warriors, fashioned after their hero, Rentap. Rentap, or Libau son of Ningkan, was an Iban chief who rebelled against the British. His war cry, “Agi idup, agi ngelaban!” (“Whilst I’m alive, I fight!) is the motto of the regiment and the war cry of modern-day rangers.
