This:
Het is ontnuchterend te lezen hoe het KNIL zijn Thermopylae vond in de Tjiaterpas waar slechts één bataljon van de Shoji Detachement, ondersteund door vliegtuigen van de Japanse Derde Luchtdivisie, doorbreekt, en, blijkbaar de weg gewezen door een Nederlandse krijgsgevangene, de Nederlandse posities overvleugelt.

It was part of the Battle of Java.

Specifically 5-7 March.

So that Tjiaterpas they mention seems to be the pass giving access to the highland/plateau close to Bandung. (North of Lembang.)

Had to do a little search but got it:

The "Tjiater" is old Dutch language for current Indonesian language "Ciater". A few kilometers North East from Mount Tangkuban Perahu:
goo.gl/maps/qQUgVjqiarVNkPFH6

Underneath link refers to "Tangkoeban Prahoe". Again old Dutch language for "Tangkuban Perahu.
Got some nice images as well.

Hope that helps.
