14 Inland River Operations Company
HF writes: I am trying to gather information about the following company and not coming up with much. Apparently in mid-January 1942 (ie during the occupation of Hong Kong by the Japanese) the Inland River Operations Company resumed river steamers between Hong Kong, Macau and the Mainland.
I am not sure whether “resumed” meant the company existed pre-1942 or whether it was a new company that was formed to operate the ferries which then “resumed” service.
Can anyone provide further information about the Inland River Operations Company. Or indeed anything about ferries both within HK waters and those going further during the Japanese Occupation.
