We visited here to pay our respects to a family member who died as a Japanese POW. It is rather harrowing to see all the plaques - thousands of them and realise that all of these men died as POW's under appalling conditions. Make sure that you open the safe in the wall to look at the visitors book -... More

It is a well maintained war grave. Worth a visit. There is a book in one of the walls with statistics. Great commemoration of the Commonwealth Forces that sacrifices their lives in WW2. It was excellent to see some of the veterans there from 70 years ago.

We had a marvellous morning at Labuan Island War Memorial Park as part of our tour with TYK Tours during 2013 including the Sandakan Prison Camp. I would recommend anyone who has lost a relative during the second world war to visit this magnificent memorial to our fallen soldiers. It is extremely well maintained and it gives you a feeling...

The War Memorial Park is a must see when in Labuan. It a meaningful tribute to almost 4,000 soldiers mainly from Australia, Britian, India and Malaysia. Of the 4,000 soldiers, more than half remain unidentified till today. The War Memorial is pristine & very well maintained and definitely worth a visit. It holds a lot of untold stories shrouded in...

The commonwealth graves commission does a fabulous job at every WWII site we've visited and this one was no exception. Seven people work at keeping the grounds up and we met the head groundsman who was prepared to be helpful in helping us locate particular graves. Over 3,000 graves are here, laid out row on row. Most of those who... More
