Evacuation to Hong Kong from Tsingtau 1937

Submitted by sue ebury on Sun, 04/27/2014 - 14:40

Does anyone know when St Giles and other schools in Tsingtau, plus British citizens ie parents, evacuated the children to Hong Kong in 1937?

Have you tried the local newspapers? It sounds like the type of event that would get reported.

PS A quick search through the local newspapers shows the spelling "Tsingtau" faded out in the 1920s, to be replaced by "Tsingtao".
