I wonder if this is Col. Tsui (Chui) Tung-loy of the Chinese Military in Wai Chow who had very good relationship with the BAAG AHQ.  He was responsible for directing the pro-Government "Official Guerrillas" in he region.  He lived humbly in Hong Kong Post-War.  His son is a practising Dermatologist, having received a sholarship from the British Legion (China Branch) to study in the UK.  

Nationality Chinese, born Kwangtung 1906, Colonel Chinese Army, with BAAG Jan 42 to August 45.

“This officer’s first association with the British forces was in Jan 42 when his group of guerillas picked up Major Monro’s escaping party and took them to safety.  When AHQ was established at Waichow, Siu was in command of the Independent Guerilla Striking force operating forward of Waichow.  It was through his area we had to work and right from the start he afforded us his full co-operation and support.  It was his guerillas who provided the diversion in our Lungkong operations when a number of Indians were got out and the safe passage of our agents through his area was solely due to his sympathetic support.  Throughout all our difficulties with the Central Government authorities over the Reds it was Col. Siu – in spite of the fact that he was the main spearhead on all their attacks on the Reds – who took our part and persuaded the authorities that we were not assisting the Reds clandestinely.  His guerilla band was the best in that area and his loyal and valuable support was one of the main factors of our success in Eastern Kwantung.”   (signed) L T Ride, Colonel.
