Australians in Brunei Part 2
The Australians were here in Brunei yesterday to commemorate the monument where they landed at Muara Beach (codename Green Beach) in 10th June 1945. It was probably one of the last battles of WWII and some questioned whether all these were necessary as the Japanese were already on the verge of collapse. But for whatever it was, the Australians did clear Brunei and liberated Brunei from the Japanese then. Here are a few photos which I borrowed from the Australians Veteran Affairs. The first is the maritime landing at Muara Beach, the second is the march from Muara to Brunei town (that path was what Jalan Muara looked like in 1945) and the last is the field emergency centre at Muara Beach.
