From Diem Vo Boat PB 135
Looking for any records of this boat, or any records of my family's time on the island at that time?
Any information at all would be much appreciated.
My name is Diem and I was 6 months old when my family escaped Vietnam and arrived at Pulau bidong in 1981.
My father does not like talking about the past, so I can't get a lot of information from him. What I do know is, our boat number was: PB135 and we were at Pulau bidong I think in March/April 1981.
We were a small boat of around 12 people. Please contact me at email@example.com
Thank you for your time,Kind regards, Diem Vo.
