Internees: men, women, and children
Information: A tent-camp was established on Laboean close to the beach to hold men, women, and children from camp Batu Lintang near Kuching. There were field cots in the tents. An extensive medical investigation determined whether each person could return to the Dutch East Indies or had to be sent to Europe. A number of monks, priests, and nuns left for Pontianak on 8 December, 1946 to return to their missionary post.
