I have a copy of his booklet, HONG KONG Before, During and After the Pacific War, which is a general narrative published in the "Kapunda Herald" while he was staying with my Grandparents at their property "Kaplee" during his convalescence from his Internment. Following on from this circulation, there were requests for an account of his personal experiences of the War and Internment in Hong Kong, I also have a typed copy of this 18 page narrative, a very interesting read.

Carol has kindly scanned the pages of this 18-page narrative for us to read.
