R.A.F. Men Adopt Two Chinese Boys
Two little Chinese boys have been adopted by a R.A.F. Spitfire Squadron stationed at Kaitak airfield, Kowloon, Hong Kong. When the squadron took over the airfield from the Japanese, the children, who are brothers, presented themselves at the orderly-room. One could speak English, and he informed the corporal that his father had been murdered by the Japanese, and his mother was seriously ill. A visit was made to the mother, and she was told that her children would be “adopted.” She was delighted, and the station medical officer who examined her said that the news may speed her recovery. The children have been named “Big Wings” (aged eleven) and “Little Wings” (aged eight).
