I refer to your report “Tribute to WWII heroes” (The Star, Aug 16). It is about time that Malaysians recognise the role played by the people of Sabah (then known as North Borneo) in the anti-Japanese resistance during World War II. The release of Lynette Silver’s new book, Blood Brothers, is most timely.

I read with dismay that North Borneo Resistance fighters like Chin Chee Kong and Joseph Wong were ignored when the Sandakan Memorial Park was opened in 1999.
