The Unforgettable Warrior For those who don't know him, He is Leftenan Adnan bin Saidi, (1915 - 14 February 1942). He was a Malayan soldier of the 1st Infantry Brigade which fought the Japanese in the Battle of Bukit Candu. Although heavily outnumbered, Adnan refused to surrender and urged his men to fight until the end. They held off the Japanese for two days amid heavy enemy shelling and shortages of food and ammunition. Adnan was shot but carried on fighting.
