The Forgotten History of Sybil Kathigasu

Sybil, a heroic woman freedom fighter for the then Malaya against the Japanese. She became the only Malayan woman to receive the George Medal for Gallantry, a high civilian honour given by King George VI. But alas, the Malaysian history mentioned nothing of her and others like Sgt Hassan, Lieutenant Adnan and Iban hero Kanang.

Do read up more about heroes like her... the story is very touching! Or just watch the video below:

Thank you for highlighting these individuals. I am particularly interested in those like Kanang who played a significant role in Sarawak.
