Today's Waichow Intelligence Summary (WIS 46, sheet 3 - the BAAG digest of intelligence) has this report about a former internee:

A reliable informant who has just returned from the Colony says that whilst there towards the end of August he saw MR. A. MORRIS at liberty. MORRIS is a former Headmaster of KING'S College (Gov. Education Dept.) and Chief of St. John's Ambulance in HONGKONG. He is said to have been released from STANLEY over a year ago on account of his advanced age and possibly on the guarantee of AW BUN HAW ((more usually Aw Boon Haw, aka 'the Tiger Balm King')), with whom he was connected after leaving St. John's Ambulance when he ran the N. T. Relief Organisation which was financed  by AW.
