3RD AUGUST, 1938 Time passed and we "clocked" the sun; for no decent jungle man carries a watch, not even should he happen to be Swiss! And jungle time! But as Kipling has it, that is another story. It was almost two o'clock and time to return to camp. Only the waterfall had to be climbed first with the Piulin aneroid. The latter registered a height of 23m (80ft).

By William Pryer (Reproduced on 1st Oct, 1938) Having to go up the Kinabatangan, I thought I should save time by using the Segaliud path to Sebangan; last February I crossed by this track without any difficulty, on the present occasion however, owing to recent heavy rains I was unsuccessful in getting over, but as a few notes of what I experienced during the journey may not be uninterested to your readers, I now send you copy of my diary:- 8th Sept. Left Sandakan at 8am in the growler, having in tow two canoes of Mr White’s, who was going to survey some land at the upper end of the Bay, dropped him at old Sandakan; arrived at the Buludupy Kampong at Seguliud at 2pm, borrowed a canoe from the natives and returned the Growler; which got back to Sandakan the same night.

May 1, 1883, SANDAKAN MR. KETTLEWELL’s yacht, the Marchesa, four hundred and eighty tons, arrived at Sandakan on the 3rd March. Mr Kettlewell is accompanied by Mrs Kettlewell, and Mr Bampfylde, the Sub-resident, availed himself of the owner’s kind offer to return in the yacht to his duties from Hongkong. On the way up from Hongkong the yacht looked in at Taae in Luzon, and at the charming island of Cagayan, Sulu. Mr Kettlewell, we understand, intends visiting Sulu and Mindanao, the Celebes, New Guinea and other islands in these parts. He has engaged the services of Mr Griffiths, photographer of Hongkong, for the cruise, and a fine series of very interesting views will thus be secured. Mr Griffiths obtained several excellent views at Kudat and Sandakan. .

1st Sept 1938 Old forts may be found in some parts of the country, but history and stories of each differs. My findings of the forts in Langas and Atas rivers, midway between Semporna and Lahad Datu proved that the natives in the olden day knew how to protect themselves from foreign aggression. It gives now a national monument of remembrance.
