Description

Satah was one of the many deep jungle medical posts set up to deal with problems "on the spot" and to provide care and treatment for the local area. It was manned by trained Orang Asli Field Staff and was connected to Gombak Hospital by radio link. If a patient needed hospital attention he/she could be airlifted by helicopter to Gombak. This service was provided by UK, US, and Australian Air Forces.
