World War Two – BAAG reports – Taikoo Dockyard -1942-1944

HF: Elizabeth Ride has sent a number of BAAG reports about Taikoo Dockyard during 1943-1944. As she says this material is very raw but I think will be of great use to anyone interested in knowing what was going on there during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong.

Elizabeth apologises for the the state of some of the documents, which as she explains were attacked by white ants while stored in GHQ India.
