Australian War Memorial- wall of honor, superimposed by the images of the 1800 Australians who were ignored by the allied governments and cruelly treated on the WW2 Sandakan Death Marches (Borneo) where only 6 survived.

This is the memorial built for the same soldiers, the Kundasang Memorial Gardens – located in Borneo
