The pilot of the Vildebeest that came down in 1934 near Bekok, was John Forde Hobler. I have the full story, to lengthy to transcribe. No precise date quoted, but there is no doubt it is the same incident.
Hobler was also involved in another force-landing, in 1936 (once again, no precise date):
"John Hobler had a second forced-landing in the tree-tops, whilst doing a low-flying run over the airfield to drop a target he had been towing, which was being used for naval practice. A clogged fuel line stalled the engine, he ran out of power, and time as well, he had to make an instant decision for a pan-cake landing, on to the tops of the rubber trees in a plantation, to avoid hitting some local houses in a kampong."
