SIR STAMFORD RAFFLES

After a brief survey of the Karimun Islands, on 29 January 1819, he established a post at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula.
Raffles, knowledgeable about the muddled political situation, took advantage to provide a rudimentary treaty between the nominal
chiefs of the area that called for the exclusivity of trade and the British protection of the area.

"the worst disaster and
largest capitulation in British history"
- Sir Winston Churchill
