15 Dec 1941. R. E. Jones Wartime diary
Air raids started 7.20AM. AA fire appears to be useless. Probably the Japs want HK intact meantime hoping the civil population will revolt or that we submit due to starvation (Marj dear, I’m glad you are away but would be happier if I knew you were really safe too).
V.G. ((Victoria Gaol)) personel returned to Stanley. V.G. smashed up.
Blackie getting used to gunfire now bless her.
Manned our posts about 9PM but returned by 10.50PM nothing doing.
