The Tip of Borneo - Tanjung Simpang Mengayau. Simpang Mengayau means 'lingering junction' as it is here that the South China Sea lingers and meets the Sulu Seas flowing from the east.  This dramatic headland is situated in the northern-most tip of BORNEO, the third largest island in the world, after Greenland and New Guinea. It is located in the Kudat Peninsula, about three and a half hours (or 215 kilometres) drive from Kota Kinabalu City.   sabahtourism.com

In Dec 1915, Emile Driant criticized renowned General Joffre for removing artillery guns & infantry from around Verdun in order to strengthen other areas -no troops or guns were returned. Thus a small number of guns & soldiers were left to man a threatened area which Joffre denied, but Driant was proven right.  When the Germans initiated their massive attack on Verdun, French defenses crumbled. Driant's 1,200 men made a desperate defense of the Bois des Caures -only 58 men survived.
