Lt Col Robson called for MGen Uno to lay his sword on the ground but Uno tried twice to simply hand it to Robson. Robson insisted and Uno finally complied. Robson had two reasons: to create an unmistakable image of surrender and to force the Japanese general to bow before him, as Japanese captors had done so often with Australian prisoners.
