Pulau Alangtiga - Beralas - Muci (W pulau Singkep)

Characteristics

Description

My father was a Japanese PoW.  He escaped from Singapore on an RAF high speed launch. The launch was dive bombed and sunk by the Japanese and he and others on the launch evidently ended up on this island for a short time.  There are two conflicting descriptions of the island on the web.  One is at

http://www.chinci.com/travel/pax/q/1651656/Pulau+Alangtiga/ID/Indonesia/0/#0|0|travel|ho|0|1651656|Pulau Alangtiga|ID|Indonesia|Asia/Pontianak|00|ISL|-0.5166667|104.0333333|Indonesia (general)

and it says:

Pulau Alangtiga is a island in the country of Indonesia with an average elevation of 3 feet above sea level. The location is sparsely populated with 0 people per mile2

Which is correct?

Also you have a photo of the island?

Pulau Alangtiga, 79m high, lying about 30 miles NW of Pulau Berhala, is the central of a group of three small thickly-wooded islands fringed by reef, and some rocks above-water.
Pulas Beralas, 69m high, lies about 1 mile N of Pulau Alangtiga.

Pulau Muci (Mubi), 81m high, lies 1 mile S of Pulau Alangtiga. These islands may be passed at a prudent distance on their W side.
A light, from which a racon transmits, is shown from Pulau Muci.

A small coral reef, with a least depth of 4m, lies 6.5 miles NE of Pulau Muci. Shoals, with depths of 5 and 10.1m lie, respectively, 1 mile ENE and 6.5 miles NNW of Pulau Muci.
