    Re upload for my country history

  2. We are thankfull to those australian troops who fought in the battle against invaders. There was memorial ceremony held by the war veterans 2 yrs ago here in Brunei. Seeing them, I felt their hardship remembering how hard the war they went through.

  3. Unbelievable old footage.

  4. The Student Official says:

    Great. My father worked in Tarakan and I know the town was a stepping stone for Imperial Japanese to invade Netherlands-Indies
