I am trying to find information about my grandfather Alexander Kinnear. This is what I know:

He was born in Dundee in 1898

His full name was Alexander Kinnear

He was known as Sandy

He joined the Hong Kong Police Force in c. 1927

He was interred at Stanley Camp

After the war he returned to Dundee and remained there until his death in 1954.
