12 Dec 1941. R. E. Jones Wartime diary
Alarms off & on all day. Stanley very quiet. Prison muster down to 1418.
Kowloon evacuated. Hundreds of Chinese shot for looting.
Jap. position not so good. They are in Kowloon being smashed up by our heavy guns & the Chinese army are advancing through the New Territories.
Stanley heavies made Blackie dash under the bed again.
West Point godown fires lit up the sky tonight.
