Charles MYCOCK [1890-1955]
Notes from Tony Banham (see his diary for 10 Dec 2009):
Lee sent an amazing document, the post-war report of Charles Mycock (headmaster of the Ellie Kadoorie School – see November). Mycock was headquartered at Woodside while Commandant of the Taikoo Braemar Dispersal Area for Refugees (which included the famous concrete rice kitchens which are still there). Now finally I know what happened there, and on the road from Quarry Gap to Quarry Bay. A real find. Interestingly, Mycock wrote it in 1945 while recuperating at Lower Hutt. The Hutt Valley was the first part of New Zealand I ever visited.
The 1938 Annual Report for the Education Department lists him as Headmaster of the Ellis Kadoorie School. (See page O19, point 11.)
There are also a couple of threads about Charles Mycock on the Stanley Camp discussion list:
