Soldier stories

JAVA BREAK AWAY GROUP. Submitted by Kevin Parker, Java.

I have a very good Indonesian friend (83yo) who, as a boy, remembers the Japanese searching for Australian troops near his home town of Sukabumi, West Java. According to him a large contingent of Japanese soldiers were deployed up Gunung Gede, a volcano near Sukabumi, to seek and destroy Australian troops, according to him they got a "bloody nose" for their efforts. This could be the break away group from the Llewiliang action. I pass this site quite often and always get an eerie feeling when I cross the bridge.
