Looking for a Lost Iban from Sarawak

by Robert Rizal Abdullah (Notes) on Sunday, 21 August 2011 at 23:24
Name: Gerinang ak. Sibat.
Address: Kerangan Bungkang, Tapang Nawi, Katibas, Song, Sarawak.
The Story: In 1943, when he was 3 years, he was adopted by a New Zealander family and brought to NZ. He joined the NZ Army and in 1956, enroute to Singapore and Malaya to join the Commonwealth Forces in fighting the Communist Insurgency, he stopped over in Sarawak to see his parents. That was the last his family ever saw him. They are left in the dark as to whether he is still alive or not. If he is dead, where is he buried?
