An account of Hong Kong leading up to the Japanese invasion in 1941

"A Voyage to War: An Englishmans's Account of Hong Kong 1936-41" by Hugh Dulley

A brief description of the book:-

Hugh Dulley’s father (Peter Dulley) and mother (Therese Sander) met in Hong Kong on New Year’s Eve 1935. Four years later at the outbreak of war, Peter, a weekend sailor, was called up in the Hong Kong Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve. He eventually graduated to command an ocean-going tug of 500 tons from Hong Kong to Aden. En route he called at islands still enjoying pre-war peacetime and navigated across the Indian Ocean using a sextant.

China Sugar Refinery - East Point 1870s

In trying to trace a possible relative listed in 1872 at "China Sugar Refinery East Point "- was that part of Jardine Matheson & Co ?

The books I've consulted don't go into this subsidiary company.

Did they ship sugar to Japan an bring back silk?  Does anyone know where to find any records of the ships, the voyages and the Masters?

thank you for your help,
