  • The World War II Memorial is definitely a must visit place when you step your foot in Labuan Island. It is a historical place and certainly a place to appreciate the scarifications that are done by all soldiers that were involved in the massive war. Most of the soldiers buried there were Australians and British, of course, there are others such as Punjab, locals, New Zealand and more. The lawn was beautifully kept with neat rows of plaques. The boddies were all shipped in from Sabah, some with the military tags hanging around the necks. Out of the 3,908, there are as much as 2,156 are unidentified. White stones are given to each soldier with their names, military positions and death ages engraved on the stones. On the first Sunday of November every year, a service to mark Remembrance Day is held here and is attended by locals and foreign visitors. Bring the whole of your family to visit this place is an open to their eyes. We should indeed cherish those who sacrificed their lives and who have passed on. Remember, peace among humanity is what counts.
