My grandfather, Lieutenant Joaquim Guterres died at Sham Shui Po prisoner of war camp in 1942.
Fought at Mt Davis with company No 9. I also am aware that his name is on a plaque outside of Club de Recreio.
There's a possible mention of this man in the 1936 Jurors list:
The list also shows three other men with the same surname living at the same address:
Japanese Card shows Joaquim J Guterres
