Japanese Occupation of Borneo

A compendium of stories from a Borneo family

Supplied by Clare Maluda


My father was conscripted when the Japanese took over the British State of North Borneo. He wrote his memoirs in a series of letters, which unfortunately were lost in the USA.

I would like to share what I recall of what he wrote with the Far East Prisoner of War Community.
