Kenneth Augustus Mason

Kenneth is my maternal Grandfather, I didn't get to meet him because he died before I was born and so I know only a little about him. He married and had 3 children, one of them being my Mother.

Kenneth was born around 1903 to William and Mable Mason in Hong Kong and died in Hong Kong in May 1949 he is buried in Happy Valley along with family members I believe. I was recently sent a photo of the grave stone but the lettering has worn away making it difficult to read.

He worked at Jardine Matheson for a time

If any of your readers have any information on Kenneth please would they get in touch

Many Thanks

I was in the Royal Navy and went to Hong Kong three times in the mid 1960s. I am trying to locate a street map of the Wanchi district for those years, especislly "Lockheart Street/ Lockhart Road." Especially "83 Bar."

Hi! I'm a History PhD student based at University of Nottingham :) I've been working on design history in post-war Hong Kong for a few years now and gwulo has always been a go-to place for interesting images and stories. I thought now's my time to contribute, and hopefully the community can help me with a few of my questions and curiosities as well!

I was a teacher at Victoria Junior Scool in Hong Kong from September 1967 until October 1971 when I was sent to Brunei to setup a school in Seria for the children attached to 6th Gurkhas and the small Garrison. I ran the Explorers Club at Victoria Junior School where we took top juniors on various trips around Hong Kong on Saturdays. Does anyone remember? Now live in Covenham in Lincolnshire. Would be pleased to hear from anyone who remembers me.

I have been very interested to follow the discussion about Wan Chai Methodist Church. I am a museum curator at Manchester Museum in the UK. I am researching for a new China gallery opening in 2021. I am trying to find photographs of Revd Edgar Dewstoe (1873-1951) who laid the foundation stone at the building of the church in 1936.  He and his wife Sallie or Sarah's  collection of textiles and other objects are now in Whitworth Art Gallery. We would like to show them in the new gallery as an example of  the connections between Manchester and China. One of your subscribers mentioned that there is film of this foundation ceremony. I'd be really interested to take a look at this if possible.
