Labuan Memorial is located within Labuan War Cemetery complex on the small island of Labuan (part of Sabah, Malaysia) in Brunei Bay, off the coast of north-west Borneo.

The Memorial consists of a colonnade forming a forecourt immediately inside the wrought iron gates of the main entrance to the cemetery. 

The Labuan Memorial was primarily intended to commemorate the officers and men of the Australian Army and Air Force who died while prisoners of war in Borneo and the Philippines from 1942 to 1945 and during the 1945 operations for the recovery of Borneo, and who have no known grave.
