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.
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.
Kweilin Weekly Intelligence Summary #66, 15.9.1944.
