Graham Scudamore Percival HEYWOOD [1903-1985]
When war arrived on 8th December, 1941, Heywood was working at the Observatory on Nathan Road. Heywood set off with a colleague to the New Territories to collect several instruments. Instead he was captured by the Japanese, and began three years and eight months of life as a prisoner of war.
His account of his wartime experiences has been published in the book, It won't be long now. You can read an extract here on Gwulo.
