Ma Tau Chung Refugee then POW Camp / Ma Tau Wai internment camp [????-????]
As we've just added a place for the Argyle Street camp, here's one for the Ma Tau Chung (also spelled Chong) camp, which was just across the road.
Again, Tony Banham's books and website are the best reference on the subject. On the website he writes:
In January , the camps were rationalised. [...] Ma Tau Chong was opened as the British Indian Army Camp, and ‘enemy’ civilians were sent to Stanley Internment Camp. Other civilian internment camps were opened at Rosary Hill and, later, Ma Tau-wai (which was the renamed Ma Tau Chung, after the remaining Indian POWs were finally moved from there to Argle Street late in the war).
The Ma Tau Wai (also spelled Wei) camp is interesting because our friend Mr Gingle was interned there towards the end of the occupation. On pg 178 of 'We Shall Suffer There', is a note from a Consuelo Delgado y Perez, describing his mother's memories. She was interned at Ma Tau Wai, and "remembers an American cook ('Mr. Jingle')." He had previously been released from Stanley internment camp, but was obviously rounded up and re-interned at some later date.
I guess the site was a British army barracks before the war. Can anyone confirm?
