His entry in the 1941 Jurors List:
Notes from Alan on the machine gun posts thread:
My father John (Sconnie) Sloan, born 1913, told me many years ago that when was in the Volunteers he was in what he said was the motorcycle machine group. He said that the plan was to race out on side car bikes to prepared mg emplacements in Kowloon and then to fall back to the next ones till they crossed over to HK. Luckily for me the idea was scrapped, he said by Maltby. He was then assigned to the defense of North Point power station where he was an engineer.
If this had happened I am sure I would not be writing this now!
Hope this helps. Not fact but hearsay.
