After the Liberation ...

 

North Point Camp

North Point camp was originally used by the Japanese as a stable North Point had been badly and was filthy. To make matters worse a mound of dead animals damaged during the Fighting. It was then stripped of its plumbing and Chinese were left to rot at the east end of the camp. Wrote one person, "... a fearful stench pervaded the area from corpses left outside the perimeter wire." This became home to the Canadians on outside the perimeter wire." This became home to the Canadians on 1941, and for many months to come.

HMCS Prince Robert 

The "Prince Robert" was the ship that carried part of "C Force" to Hong Kong. During the war it had served as a submarine attack ship and had sunk at least one German sub. The Prince Robert returned to Hong Kong to pick up the Canadians and take them home. Life is full of odd twists and turns. At right is the Prince Robert arriving at Kowloon, August 30, 1945.
