Raja Syed Alwi died in Arau on February 1, 1943 and a day later, before the funeral, Syed Hamzah was proclaimed fifth Raja of Perlis, by the consent of the Japanese Military Governor of Kedah and Perlis. Tang Su Chin, Julie (2002) Op Cit pp 267–268 Harassment by the authorities led him to leave his home town for Kuala Kangsar in July 1940.
