Photostat copy of a published edition of her SUMATRAN DIARY (47pp), which was apparently produced by the Presbyterian Society shortly after the Second World War, covering her experiences as an internee in the Far East, at Muntok, on Bangka Island, February - March 1942; at Palembang, Sumatra, March 1942 - September 1944; at Muntok again, October 1944 - April 1945; and very briefly at Loebeck Linggau, Sumatra, where she died in April 1945. Margaret Dryburgh was a missionary before the fall of Singapore, and this well-written record of internment includes many poems and prayers which she composed of special relevance to camp life. Also drawings.
