Dense jungles, like this one in which Australians are marching single file, cover about three-quarters of Malaya and lie between the Japanese and Singapore. The jungle is pitch black in spots and dotted with pill-boxes. The few roads of Malaya are minded as well, acting as a natural defense against the invading enemy forces (LIFE, 22 Dec 1941)
