Isobel HOLLAND [1915-????]
Isobel Morrison Holland was born in Scotland in 1915, her brother Alistair was born in 1917, and her sister Joan Macdonald Holland was born in 1919 or 1920. The family moved to Hong Kong in 1919.
Isobel's mother, Jessie Holland, was shot and died from bullet wounds on 12th December 1941. She was buried in the Happy Valley cemetery the following day, the Rev Frank Short officiated. Isobel's father, Adam Holland, died in the bombing of Stanley Camp's Bungalow C in January 1945.
Jessie Holland was a teacher and an accomplished artist. She was working as an auxiliary nurse when she was fatally wounded.
Isobel Holland was a bridesmaid at Helen Duncan (nee Wylie)'s wedding but our family lost touch with the young Hollands after the war. My hope is that Isobel and Helen's friednship was an enduring one and that someone in the Duncan family may have knowledge of her. Any photo of Helen's marriage would also be wonderful, as we are bereft of any pictorial records of the Hollands, although Adam was a prolific lawn bowler during his time in Hong Kong.
