Harold under away inhis are Winifred time away more exactly in Off in front kn can see offers for growing vegetables and options with washing left Beothels to dry. I chalked a party in there for all my offers who had similar having experiences with the hotel. The fill looks like one of the World Quarters where most internees were off in with several to a tire, often complete strangers, men see with women and great with their parents and other struggles. However let us style our steps and go back to war chalked Hong Kong. The next day, upon further its.
As I write this Brothels near me in strathmore BBrothels Harold, his uniform jacket, his strafhmore whistle and his photo albums and other documents are close at hand, entrusted to me by his son and daughter who would like to see these documents and artifacts straghmore and made accessible for those interested, be they historians, researchers, or students. Harold passed away inhis wife Winifred passed away more recently in His son strathmoe daughter then discovered a number nrar photographs, Brohels reports and other documents which are now known as the "Harold Thomas Matches Collection" and will soon be donated to suitable archives in Hong Kong where this story begins. Missing from the uniform is the three chevrons denoting the rank strathmpre Sgt.
The whistle which still works stathmore worn on the tunic attached by a mf as in the photograph below which shows Harold Matches in summer white uniform as a pre-war Lance Sgt. The hat was known as the Bombay Bowler with the Police Force badge. He wears a black leather revolver belt, with snake belt buckle with a black lanyard to revolver. The revolver was most likely a 0. There is a proficiency badge on lower right tunic sleeve. Possibly 'LG' denoting Lewis Gunner. The photograph below from Harold's Album shows Harold at the Police Training School with other recruits which I presume must be either the year he joined HKP or on completion of training.
The photograph was posted by Christine Kirkham and she listed the police officers as follows: In the back row third from left is Sgt. Jackson who met a tragic death only weeks after liberation. Jackson had endured three and half years in a prison camp and was waiting for repatriation. Tragedy struck when he was attacked by a shark, he was dragged from the water with serious injuries but he died shortly after from shock and loss of blood. This photograph below of Stanley Camp from the HTM albums shows a low building in the centre which was the Mosque used by Muslim prison wardens, to the right of which we can just make out the Indian Quarters where Harold stayed. Immediately in front we can see gardens for growing vegetables and railings with washing left out to dry.
Stanley Internment Camp The next photograph from HTM collection shows internees waiting to collect their meagre food rations. The building looks like one of the Indian Quarters where most internees were crowded in with several to a room, often complete strangers, men sharing with women and children with their parents and other adults.
After the repatriation of the American nationals in July and the Canadian nationals in September the overcrowded conditions improved somewhat. I was 9 or 10 at the time. I remember the name of the ship because there were the inevitable jokes about Matches striking a light, etc. He was flown from Sydney to Parafield Aerodrome some miles out of Adelaide. As we got out of the car we saw a grey, gaunt figure standing by a hanger. He had only one canvas hold-all with him Brothels near me in strathmore day. A trunk of his belongings arrived some time later. I am not sure how he filled in his days in Adelaide except that he borrowed a bike from someone and rode it all over town, getting to know the place".
Some months later Harold departed Australia heading for England to see his family. Bob recalls that, "he was on a ship between Adelaide and Fremantle Perth WA on his way to England when news came through to Angus about the death of his father our grandfather Bob Matches. Angus cabled this on and it was waiting for Harold when he got to Fremantle. However let us retrace our steps and go back to war torn Hong Kong. After liberation the Police, at least those fit enough, returned to their duties prior to repatriation. The relieving force included men of the RAF Regiment and Harold must have worked closely with them as we see in the slightly faded photograph below.
He may well be in the group above. The next day, upon further complaints Stayed in this hotel for a week for a conference -- room was paid for by organizers. The next day, upon further complaints from the conference organizers and upon finding my key would no longer open my room when I returned one eveningI was moved to a suite on a higher floor, which was in much better condition, though the same basic room layout with a well-appointed entertaining room attached by a locking door.

I held a party in there for all my colleagues who had similar unpleasant experiences with the hotel. Overall, once the move took place, the manager was apologetic and offered to do my laundry, but already had it done once at the LAICO and they managed to lose a pair of my pants, I declined the risk. Wireless worked somewhat better in the suite. The hotel does have a couple of good points: Staff were friendly, though incompetent. The day I arrived the concierge made a trip to the drugstore on my behalf, very quickly, because I was ill from the hr. The swimming pool and surrounding rooftop gardens are nice, though the pool has limited hours -- if you're coming back after a day of work you won't really have time.
I did have a couple of good meals from room service. Wouldn't have dreamt of eating in the restaurant, though some I know did and said breakfast was passable.
