Shared note

The family leaves Hong Kong - 1941

Hong Kong fell to the Japanese Army on 25 Dec 1941. About 2 weeks after that event, Chu Moy and her extended family fled the city. Kam Wing Choy as the oldest male had responsibility for arrangements. The group also included:

The group left Hong Kong by overnight ferry to Zhongshan, then to Heshan, and on to the village at Gaoyao. The trip involved a ferry, a boat, bicycles, sedan chairs and walking. Dad recalls it took 4 or 5 days.

This image differs slightly from the one held in Kogarah Library as backing card has been cropped. Importantly, there is a stamp of the studio where the photo was taken. This gives an address in Zhaoqing.
