My grandfather, Mohamed Ahsan, came to Hong Kong in approx 1920, aged 14. He studied at Ellis Kadoorie School for 2 years, and then went onto Queen’s College. Once he graduated he obtained a job as a Clerk at the General Post Office. His brother Mohamed Yousif joined him at the GPO shortly after. I have been told that one of his duties was to intercept mail that was coming from Japan, things like pro-Japanese propaganda, gold, money etc. This was apparently intended for the people that the Japanese had ‘planted’ in Hong Kong before hostilities began.
