Comments

Birth year is right(1944)-pretty sure this is 'Dick' Worralll who served in HK Police from 1967 to 1997( or thereabouts).I believe he now lives in UK. There was also a son( of Dick Worrall ) who also joined the HKP(no other details known).

Yes the dates are right. I was born at Tweed Bay Hospital, Stanley POW camp on 13.8.44. My father Captain William Roy Worrall and mother Raquel Bonner (widow of Cpl "Tom" Bonner of the HKVDF (The Volunteers) who was killed at Overbays during the defence of HK) were both internees at Stanley POW camp and were married there on 2.6.43. I joined the Royal Hong Kong Police on 7/1/67 as a Probationary Inspector, was awarded the CPM for Meritorious Service in the H.M the Queen's 1992 New Year's Honours List and retired from the force just before the handover in 1997 in the rank of Chief Superintendent.

My son, Timothy Simon (Tim) Worrall, joined the Royal Hong Kong Police in 1994, as an Inspector. He is currently a Chief Inspector serving in the Marine Region. Interestingly, Tim is the youngest of all the expatriate officers still serving in the (now) Hong Kong Police. That means, all being well, he will be the last officer in the Hong Kong Government on the old overseas (expatriate) terms of service.
