R. E. Stott, a land bailiff, was fighting with the Volunteers on the Peak at the time of the surrender. Soon after he was diagnosed with a duodenal ulcer, and eventually ended up at the French Hospital. He escaped from there on August 11, 1942.

He appears as "Robert Edward" in the Jurors List for 1923, "Robert" in the next few years' lists, then "Robert Edgar" in the list for 1928.

He wrote an article for The China Mail, on 1946-12-31 (see pages 4 & 5). It noted "I myself have been with them ((Chinese people)) for twenty six years", so he must have arrived in Hong Kong (or possibly China) in 1920.
