"This marks the beginning of the British Borneo era, for about a year later Labuan was ceded to Her Majesty the Queen."

Join us for the talk on Marudu 1845 on 18 July 2019 (Thursday) at 8.00pm at the Secretariat, Damai.THE BATTLE OF MARUDU

This is a letter dated 3 Oct., 1845 from Captain E.G. Fanshawe of H.M.S. Cruizer to his father, headed Cruizer Singapore. “Via Marseilles”.The letter describes the Battle of Marudu Bay, against the pirate stronghold of Serip Osman on 19 August 1845, in which he has taken part. It contains a small drawing of the scene of the attack and the position of the defensive boom across the river, up which the ship’s boats were advancing. This boom, composed of enormous logs laid over and attached to a chain cable, taken from an English merchantman captured by the pirates, was being opened when the first of the casualties, the Master of H.M.S. Wolverine who was leading this phase of the attack, was shot and killed. As soon as the boom was forced, the fort, on a branch of the river a short way above, was captured after a brief engagement. He concluded, “…the operations of the squadron will, if well followed up, lead to a suppression of piracy… and open to us the beautiful island of Borneo…”.

This marks the beginning of the British Borneo era, for about a year later Labuan was ceded to Her Majesty the Queen.

Sabah Society will be hosting a talk on Marudu 1845 on the 18th (Thursday) at 8.00pm at their Secretariat. Please attend if you have the time and inclination.
