Dr James Patrick TaylorPrint Page
Plaque commemorates Dr James Patrick Taylor, member of The Sandakan Underground in World War Two. Dr James Taylor pursued his professional career in the British Empire outpost known as British North Borneo, until the Japanese occupation during World War Two.
The Japanese allowed him to remain at his post, but he was imperceptibly drawn into the key role of organizing the underground movement, supporting Australian POWs until he was arrested and tortured. With his wife, he survived internment and returned to Australia.
