George Gerrard came to Hong Kong in 1914 to work for the Taikoo Dock Company.

He was interned in Stanley, where he acted as a Block Quartermaster. He was repatriated on a hospital ship having lost about ten stone in weight. He returned to work in Hong Kong, eventually retiring to Whitley Bay (now Tyne and Wear).

Comments

There is a brief biography of George in the introduction to his diary. The diary covers 1943-1945, while he was interned in Stanley Camp.

George Gerrard age 41 buyer for J. Swire & Co  sailed from Hong Kong to Southampton arriving 7 July 1932. Is this him?
