The Hongkong Oxygen & Carbide Company during WW2

HF: The Indhhk article linked below suggests some confusion about three companies that had similiar sounding names during WW2 and the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong.

They were:
a) Hong Kong Oxygen
b) Hongkong Oxygen & Carbide
c) Far East Oxygen & Acetylene

Time to attempt to separate them starting with Hongkong Oxygen & Carbide.

Elizabeth Ride has sent these BAAG reports. She has subtitled #66, 15.9.1944. HK Carbide factory. Until corrected I am assuming this refers to HK Oxygen & Carbide.
