In 1923-24 a World Cruise was undertaken by the British Special Service Squadron and 4th Feb 1924 they arrived at Port Swettenham (now known as Port Klang). They had 6 days there and men were granted leave and went ashore to conduct "Kuala Lumpur excursions". One of these excursions was to Batu Caves. Postcards of the caves were printed. Read more on The Empire Cruise.

Also in 1924, the British Empire Exhibition was held at Wembley in Middlesex, England. The British Empire contained 58 countries at that time, including Malaya. Postcards were printed for the Malaya Pavilion and published for the Malayan governments. See more on the BEE.
