Father Biotteau's wartime diary
Here are some extracts of Father Biotteau’s diary. He was the procurator of the Society of Foreign Missions of Paris based in Pokfulam, with a unique view on Mount Davis during the battle. His testimony is in French but still quite relevant for those who can read it and want more details about what happened.
I did not transcribe everything yet. Only the most colourful moments. It is a great coincidence to read your email because last Friday, we read some extracts of this diary during the Remembrance ceremony for the Free French Forces in Stanley cemetery: http://www.consulfrance-hongkong.org/Ceremonie-en-memoire-des-volontaire...
