Oct 13 From Richard N. Liu, St. John Ambulance:
I have the sad duty to inform you on the passing of our WW2 veteran, Dr. Po Tin Chak. I believe the HKVCA published a story on Dr. Chak and his handkerchief that was signed by 100 fellow POWs a few years ago. Please find the link to Dr. Chak's In Memoriam which has been approved by his family for publication. This was also published by the Consulate General of Canada in Hong Kong & Macao which garnered attention in the media in Hong Kong: 
We will have a "No Stone Left Alone" ceremony on NOV 06th and will lay the last poppy on Dr. Chak's headstone as the 80th anniversary approaches; followed by a virtual commemoration with the SJA Hong Kong Brigade a month later. We welcome you to join us.

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.
