REMEMBER; THE FALL OF HONG KONG, 1941
In November, 1941 a force of 1,975 Canadians were sent to reinforce the Garrison of Hong Kong. The Canadian Government assured them it would be an easy posting. All that changed on December 8 when Japan attacked. Later the Japanese assaulted Hong Kong and within days the Men were hundreds of miles behind the Allied lines fighting for their lives. Their position was hopeless and despite a spirited defense they surrendered on December 25th. Captivity was brutal and many did not survive. Of the 1,975 Men who sailed into Hong Kong, 557 would never return to Canada.

The Jack Kipling identification has been getting a lot of coverage lately. It appears that after only 24 years, the doubters have conceded that the original report from 1992 was, in fact, correct. For those who don’t know, I wrote that report when Record Officer of the CWGC in Maidenhead, England. For YOUR EYES ONLY the report is in this email. It’s odd but I am not mentioned in any of these articles, and no one bothered to contact me (very odd). My feelings are very hurt. If you have any questions please contact me.
