Jimmy Newall was another name I remember.
I've got some copies of old Articles stashed away some-place, I'll see if I can come up with some more names which maybe familiar to you.
Seventry years ago-in this same month of April-I arrived in Hong Kong for the first of many times.
The first people to come aboard were the three sisters Tam King, Tam Choi and the youngest, Tam Chen.
Here's a photo, taken on Truro Station some 40 odd years later, of Tam Chen and her daughter, Cheng Wing Ling (Rita), arriving for a visit! (She is now living in San Jose , U.S.A.)
