Robert Basil LEVKOVICH (aka Boris Vasili) [1915-????]
Robin Basil Levkovich was a policeman of Russian origin who had become a naturalized Briton in the years preceding the war.
During the hostilities he worked for Food Control and was captured by the Japanese while on a mission to Kowloon. He was held in the Kowloon Hotel for a number of months after the surrender on the grounds that he'd worked for the British Government, but was released in March 1942 due to the intervention of his family dentist, who was in fact a Japanese officer.
Thereafter he worked as a driver for Dr. Selwyn-Clarke and helped in his illegal relief activties. He was caught while attempting to escape (on a mission from Selwyn-Clarke the main point of which was to contact Dr Gordon King) and interrogated. Nevertheless, he managed to escape to Macao after his release and was eventually debriefed by the British Army Aid Group in December 1942.
