Feb 08 From Alison Griffith: I was not sure how to celebrate my Dad’s 100th Birthday during COVID.  We were expecting to have a big party for him to celebrate this momentous milestone but simply can’t do that in person.  So I’m hoping instead that maybe we can all join virtually to celebrate my Dad, George Peterson who will be 100 years old on Monday, February 8th, 2021.   He resides at Deer Lodge Centre on Tower 6 in Winnipeg, and he is the last surviving Winnipeg Grenedier as well as a Hong Kong POW Veteran from WWII.  If you can find some time this Monday to toast my Dad with a Crown Royal, a kind thought, or a virtual greeting at the link below, we would be grateful! Well Wishes can be sent to him here: https://deerlodge.mb.ca/residents/well-wishes/ This is the cake that my sister Pat had made for our Dad and I think the Co-Op Grocery Store in Southdale did a fantastic job!!
Feb 07 Minutes of the January Board of Directors meeting posted.
Feb 04 Member Steven Mellor alerted us to a new video: Battle of Hong Kong 1941 - Pacific War DOCUMENTARY which provides a graphic-rich description of the battle. A couple of our historians have indicated that it contains inaccuracies, but still recommend it.

Our Mission:

To educate all Canadians on the role of Canada's soldiers in the Battle of Hong Kong and on the effects of the internment of the battle’s survivors on both the soldiers and their families. We also assist in the support and welfare of Hong Kong veterans and their widows.
