Hong Kong Police Orchestra/band Stanley Camp.

Hello, my grandfather was in the Hong Kong Police before being interned at Stanley Camp with my Grandmother, my Dad and his two brothers when the Japanese invaded Hong Kong.

His name is Harold Woods and I believe his nickname was "Timber" Woods. 

He played the clarinet and was in the Hong Kong Police Orchestra or Band and their performances were played on the radio i believe.
