If anyone has a photo of this man, please could you post a copy for us to see? I'm helping Patricia O'Sullivan identify some faces in a photo, and one is likely this man.

Thanks Paul, I've added in your extra information above.

If you have any more information / photos of his time in Hong Kong, it'll be great to see them.
