In 1943, when he was 3, he was given to a New Zealander and he grew up in New Zealand. In the 1960s, as a young man he was fighting in Malaya. He did not forget his roots. He his family.
His name is Sibat. His family in Sarawak wants to know if he is alive or if he is dead, where his body is laid to rest.
What a wonderful gift it would be if, they got news of his well being. I had gone to the RSA and Ministry of birth, Marriages and death. But without his Kiwi adopted name it is very hard to trace.
Gerinang Ak Sibat comes from Sarawak, in Borneo like me. He would look like some of the men here in this photo.

ANZAC Day, the Australian Vets are remembering their battle in Borneo. A battle that was not recognised until now.
The Secret war in the 60s in Sarawak was recognised only last year.
On Anzac day, I remember my parents and grand parents who lived during the World War 2.
