A few shots of the landing at Weston, North East Coast of Brunei Bay and soldiers scouting. Two shots of Indian prisoners of war. They were members of an engineering unit captured at Singapore and were brought by the Japanese to Lutong, Sarawak, to work at the oil refinery. They were released by the Australians. Most of the scenes are of the oil refinery and damage done to it by the bombing.
