    SYNOPSIS: Queen Elizabeth began the second day of her State visit to Malaysia on Wednesday with a visit to the National Monument in Kuala Lumpur.

    For the Queen and Prince Philip it was the start of a day in which they met crowds of ordinary people in the picturesque capital, delighting many by shaking hands and talking with them. At the National Monument hundreds had gathered from early morning.

    The monument celebrates the victory of Commonwealth forces over the Communists during the 12-year Malayan emergency which ended in 1960, and commemorates the Malaysian and Commonwealth troops who died in the fighting.

    After the ceremony excited crowds gave security men problems, especially when camera enthusiasts broke their lines to get shots of the Royal visitors.

    Later in the day the Royal party was to be entertained with a Government reception at Parliament House.
