Hong-Kong Mail


It may interest Cheltonians who have relatives or friends in Hong-Kong to hear that mail is arriving at least in Stanley Civilian Internment Camp.

Miss Yvonne Drewe, of 88, Bath-road, tells us that she has received a postcard, containing a 60-word message from her cousin (Mr. Eric Kennard), in the course of which he says that his father, also an internee at the same camp, has received a letter from her father, and that they have received several letters from the mother in Australia.

Mr. C. Drewe has also received a notification from London that an internee from that camp, who has been repatriated, has reported that he was personally acquainted with Mr. Eric Kennard and his wife, and that they were quite well on September 23, 1943.
