Photographer's Note

The view of Mount Kinabalu and Kampong Lembah Permai or previously Kampong Lobou Lobou from the veranda of the 4th Garden inside the Kundasang War Memorial.

Within the concrete and stone walls of the war memorial are 4 gardens with the first two representing the fallen Australian and British soldiers with the 3rd garden for the locals which had assisted the Allied forces, during the 2nd World War.

The 4th garden from which this photo was taken is on a higher level with a rectangular pond in the middle of a pergolas setting. Only on special occasion, the frames with the names of the fallen soldiers would be displayed on the 2 walls of this garden. More than 2400 Allied prisoners died during captivity in Sandakan POW Camp and the 3 death marches to Ranau, near the end of the war.
