Fish Hatcheries, Jemaluang, 1941
An item for "Do You Remember?". What is the story behind this catch.

Iris Lutz has provided clues:
"Now in regards to cooking them, I think Ted said something about putting leaves around them before cooking them in the ashes. I am sorry I didn't keep the scales now, as the 5 he sent home in his letter were certainly very big."

The identity of some in the photo was provided by Henry West in Makan 263, Oct/Dec, 1981.
"The snap of the "Sportsmen" holding that good catch in No.262 was taken near Jemaluang just before we moved to Gemas. The "Sportsmen" at B Echelon, with a little digging simply ran the water off some fish breeding ponds and, "voila", enough fish to feed 3 Companies. The good looking one, right front, is yours truly, Bert Phillips is just left of centre and Bob Cahill is extreme left."
