WW2 Japanese Occupation – “Copper Offering Movement”

Elizabeth Ride has sent a WW2 British Army Aid Group (BAAG) report about the collection of copper by the Japanese during the occupation of Hong Kong.

Part 1 states that those offering copper goods can do so “without anything in return or they can exchange…for rice, sugar, oil and firewood.”

Part 2 states that 7,000 catties of copper had “been offered by the residents of Hong Kong and Kowloon.”
