Portrait Lily & Johnny Lafleur, ca. 1951

Charles Gesner van der Voort (1916-1991) worked for Holland-China Trading Company in Shanghai, from 1939 to 1943.

Franciscus Hubertus Joseph Alphonsus Lafleur (1890 - 1946) was a colleague at the Hong Kong office and lived in Hong Kong with his wife Lily (1907-1982), son Ah Tong and daughter Ah Kan (Mary). The Japanese interned the family in Stanley Camp, Hong Kong. Unfortunately, Franciscus (probably people called him Frans) died soon after WWII.

This image is very similar to http://gwulo.com/atom/19005, likely to be taken a few moments earlier or later.

On both images the same person in uniform is shown, but here the name given is Cmdr. Peter MacRitchie of HMCS Prince Robert, where on "19005" its Lieutenant-Commander Fred Day.
