According to "Empire Made Me" by Robert Bickers, George Matcham left the Shanghai Metropolitan Police in 1922 to work at the Hong Kong stables . He was one of the jockeys who rode for my grandfather, Charles Warren and in particular came a close second with the pony Mosaic Tile in the Gymkhana Stakes at the Special Race Meeting for the Prince of Wales on 7 April 1922, leaving the rest of the field five lengths behind. He is named as attending my grandfather's funeral in June 1923.
