I think the Allies bombed it a couple of times during the War. And someone
may have landed on it.
ISTR it was one of those places that the Japanese POWs were taken out of
prison and made into a police force after the war to keep the locals in
So it probably technically belongs to the US since the UK did that and the
UK belongs to the US.

HSBC Bank plc may be solicited in the course of its placement efforts for a
new issue, by investment clients of the firm for whom the Bank as a firm
already provides other services. It may equally decide to allocate to its
own proprietary book or with an associate of HSBC Group. This represents a
potential conflict of interest. HSBC Bank plc has internal arrangements
designed to ensure that the firm would give unbiased and full advice to the
corporate finance client about the valuation and pricing of the offering as
well as internal systems, controls and procedures to identify and manage
conflicts of interest.
