Hello Lawrence, do you have any information on what were the circumstances or how Rudy Choy joined BAAG? I know that he had founded Kowloon Dairy in 1940, so obviously he was already a successful business man.

Rudy Choy was born in November 1910 and passed away on 29th April 1992.

BAAG 'Post Y', Chek Keng [????- ]

Post Y was an important site in WW2, and still stands today.

Lawrence Tsui:

A BAAG post was set up at Chekeng Village - Post Y; which was also a HQ of the [Communist 'East River Brigade'] Guerrillas.  The BAAG Advance HQ at Wai Chow (Huizhou) sent agents to HK through Post X (Shayuchung of Dapeng Bay), by guerrilla-operated junk to Post-Y (Chekeng) and throught the Ancient Route to urban Kowloon, one of the Safe House (Post-Z) being the Kwong Hang Store at Portland Street, Shamshuipo, which was operated by the Red Guerrillas.

Hong Kong under Japanese rule.

The Japanese were not exactly welcomed into Hong Kong by the Chinese population - after all, this was the same Japanese Army that had occupied the adjoining Chinese province of Guangdong. The abuses committed by Japanese troops in looting and raping were hardly a good start, and the severity of Japanese martial law (Hong Kong was kept under martial law for the entire duration - three years and eight months - of the Japanese occupation) did nothing to bring peoples hearts and minds round to favour Japanese rule.
