Barbara Petro was working at the American Consulate at the time of the Japanese attack of December 8, 1941. With the rest of the American diplomats and staff, she was held in a house just outside the boundaries of Stanley until just before the June/July repatriation, which she joined. Her husband had already escaped from Hong Kong, and it's believed she joined him in the USA.
