1942 — Battle of KOEPANG. Japanese troops landed in Timor and met spirited resistance from the Australian troops. Faced with overwhelming odds, most of the Australians surrendered, while others joined forces with the 2/2nd Independent Company and waged a long and gruelling guerrilla campaign, with assistance of friendly Timorese, against the Japanese. The initial attack on Timor cost 84 Australian lives
