Kawakami Oil Company in WW2 (AKA Socony-Vacuum Oil Company)
Elizabeth Ride sent this 1944 BAAG Kweilin Weekly Intelligence Summary #77 of December 1944 which reports:
“Socony Oil Installation, Laichikok. This is now known as the Kawakami Oil Company Factory (Japanese characters). Three oil tanks are still standing, but are empty. There are over 300 50-gallon drums of petrol and kerosene in camouflaged dugouts in the area”
Any further information about either a) Kawakami during the Japanese occupation of HK or b) Socony-Vacuum Oil Company in HK would be very helpful.
