Hell in the tropics; Jungle covered hills and swamps of Labuan Island.
'The Battle of Labuan Island'. Elements from one of Australia's finest Divisions the 9th against Imperial Japanese forces on the island of Labuan off Borneo during June 1945. It formed part of the Australian invasion of North Borneo, and was initiated by the Allied forces as part of a plan to capture the Brunei Bay area and build a base for the British Pacific Fleet. The Islands airstrips would be built into a base. Supply and command centers would be constructed all to support future offensives.
Personal for the offensive would come from the Australian 9th Divisions 24 Brigade, and the 20th Brigade. The main combat units would be the 2/28th and 2/43rd Battalions, the 2/32nd Battalion was assigned as a reserve force, along with the 2/11th Commando Squadron, the 2/12th Field Regiment, the 2/9th Amoured Regiment, (equipped with Matilda Tanks and 'Frog' flame thrower Matilda tanks, the 2/2nd Machine Gun Battalion, and a range of engineer, signals and logistics units.
The RAAF and USAF and the United States Navy and the Royal Australian Navy had performed limited bombardment of the Island since May 3rd in preparation for the invasion.
The convoy carrying the 9th Division left Morotai on 4 June and experienced another form of hell from cramped conditions aboard the transport ships, the heat and high humidity making conditions unbearable. The convoy reached Brunei Bay before dawn on 10 June. The main body of the convoy anchored off Labuan.
A heavy bombardment of the beach by cruisers, destroyers, and rocket ships was carried out prior to the landing.
the Australian came ashore unopposed.
The landings on Brunei Beach began on June the 10th, 1945.
The elements of the 24th Brigade, two battalions, 2/28th and the 2/43rd (approx 750 men) hit the beach. The 2/28th from the west, and 2/43rd from the East.
The 2/32nd Battalion and the 2/11th Commando Squadron were left embarked as reserves.
The 2/28th were given the objective of securing the town and the high ground at Victoria hill, and flagstaff hill respectively.
Before they could reach their objective, the 2/28th fought a savage battle at a canal (28 metres wide by 1.5 metres deep) the canal was guarded by a machine gun bunker, on clearing that after heavy fighting they continued on their way to their objective. they fought their way to an area of the hills the troops named 'the Pocket". The main terrain features within the Pocket were three jungle covered areas of high ground named Lushington Ridge, Norman Ridge and Lyon Ridge. The entire area was literally covered in mine fields, booby traps and machine gun bunkers. A a large swamp prohibited movements making it difficult to move the 2/11th forward. The resistance in the hills was so strong, Tanks and "Frog"flame thrower Matilda tanks were moved forward, Artillery, the (2/12th infantry unloaded 200 tons of 25 pounder ammo onto the Pocket whilst heavy machine gun units were moved forward. The main Japanese Garrison had dug in here.
The Japanese opened up with all they had, and they had a lot, so much that the advance was halted whilst the RAAF was called in to lay a heavy bombardment on the hills.
Days of extremely savage and intense fighting took place by both C & D companies of the 2/28th Battalion, they were really amongst it,
Fighting against a well dug in and heavily supported enemy. The Pocket was finally taken on June 21 finally the whole Island was in Australian Hands.
This Infantry Battalion saw more heavy action than any others during the Campaign.
Of the more than 380 dead Japanese troops killed in the Invasion, more than 250 Japanese lay dead in the 'Pocket'; approximately 20 light and heavy machine guns were captured along with many light and heavy mortars.
In the meanwhile The 2/43rd Battalion would would capture the airfield located north of Victoria, designated "No. 1 Strip" by the Australians. By June 13th the main airport on Labuan had been taken and most of the island was in Australian hands The 2/43rd Battalion went on to take the second strip, the temporary airstrip at Timbalai on Labuan's west coast. From then on the 2/43rd patrolled the island. cleaning up pockets of resistance whilst securing the operation.
The 2/11th Commando's had come ashore during this time and captured Victoria Harbour with what they called 'light resistance'. The Commandos then moved into the town of Labuan and joined up with the 2/32nd in reserve. From June 21st the Commando Regiment would be used to patrol the Island and clean up any small pockets of resistance left. They would be involved with Topography work and other skilled work.
They would go on to kill 27 Japanese soldiers.
Again all Europeans on the Island of Labuan were executed by the Japanese. whilst labourers were starved to death in work parties
Only 11 Japanese were captured during the whole campaign on Labuan Island. I wonder why!

238 THE LATE MR. P. MACARTHUR, SEN.
In the Watch of Saturday we furnished some particulars relative to the late Mr. Peter MacArthur, farmer, of Greenvale, but because of the very late hour at which the news of his death was received several interesting facts were omitted. As stated, he was born in Mull, Argyleshire, Scotland, in 1806, and was thus at the time of liis death 86 years of age. On December 4,1852, he landed with his wife and family at Portland, in the ship Marmion of New York, and came at once to this district. For three or four years he was employed at Compton and elsewhere, and was one of the first who ever ploughed land in the neighbourhood, having ploughed a field for the late Dr, Wehl one or two years after his arrival. Thirty-seven years ago he started farming on his own account, having secured the block of ground which he subsequently called Greenvale. He prospered, and became one of the best-to-do agriculturists in the district. It was only a few years ago that advancing age compelled him to relinquish the pursuit, although he might, as far as circumstances were concerned, have entered upon a life of leisure many years before. As time went on his family grew up and settled down, most of them in the South-East. Mr, MacArthur was three times married, and his family in this country consisted of seven sons and five daughters, ten of whom survive him. His sons John and Neil died several years ago. At present there is no family in the Soutn-East that has so wide a connection as that of the late Mr. MacArthur, or that is so numerous. Besides his five surviving sons (Messrs. Archibald, Donald, James, Charles, and Dugald MacArthur) and five daughters (Mesdames William Sinclair, A. Buchanan, P. Sinclair, J. Smith, and R. Carrison), there are 76 grandchildren and 35 gieat grandchildren of the deceased living, making a total of 121. The deceased took no part in public affairs, but was widely respected socially and in business. His funeral on Sunday afternoon was largely attended, not withstanding that it took place in the midst of a steady rain, a fact which indicated very clearly the esteem in which he and his family were held. The Rev. R. A. Caldwell, of whose church the deceased was for many years a member, conducted the funeral service.

251 WELCOME TO MR. JOHN A. RANN
The anticipatry welcome we offered to Mr. Rann on his return home, was followed by a pleasant gathering of the members of the Port Adelaide Christy Ministrels, at Mr. Spritch's Wharf Hotel, Port Adelaide, on Tuesday night. After a very capital dinner (which reflected very great credit on the Host) over which His Worship the Mayor presided, Mr. Mussared being in the Vice-Chair, the Toast of the evening was given by the Chairman. He said Mr. Rann was the son of a respected old colonist, and had returned to the colony after his visit with new feelings of an attachment to the place. He had known the guest from boyhood, and he had taken an active interest in manly sports, and had been Secretary of a popular institution, whose object had been to aid the needy and whose mission he was he was glad to say had been most successful, though in though in fairness he must say that he thought it was mainly through the energy of the Secretary (applause.) The complement paid Mr. Rann was one which would also show the respect in which his honoured parents were held. The toast was received with musical honours. The Vice-Chairman, on behalf of the Port Christys, warmly endorsed the complement. Mr. J. A. Rann, received with cheers, very briefly expressed his gratitude to the expressions of kindness given.
He had had a pleasant trip to England, and was glad to return to South Australia. (Cheers). Several other toasts, including that of "The Host and Hostess" and "The Press," "The Ladies", &c., were honoured, and the proceedings, varied by some capital songs, ended at an early hour.
