SANDAKAN: A copy of the World War Two Sandakan Area Instrument of Surrender signed at Labuan on 13th Sep 1945, will be placed at the Sandakan Heritage Museum for viewing by visitors.

The framed copy of the document was presented by Sarawak Tourism Federation Heritage Development committee chairman, Lim Kian Hock to Sandakan Municipal Council president, Datuk James Wong at a dinner reception on Friday.

According to Lim, the copy of the Sandakan Area Instrument of Surrender was handed over to him by Gerard A. Joseph, the grandson of Major-General George Wootten, in Kuching during the 70th anniversary commemoration of the end of World War Two.

Present to witness the occasion were Borneo Exhibition Group (BEG) chairman, Ryan Rowland, two former soldiers, Ron Hatch, 92 and Len Snell, 95.
