This chapter discusses the events that occurred in 1943. The author reveals that 1942 was a bad year for the garrison in Hong Kong; 1,468 of them had died due to the sinking of the Lisbon Maru or to disease. Some of the prisoners of war (POWs) in Hong Kong were transferred to camps in Japan, but the Stanley Internment Camp, Shamshuipo Camp, Ma Tau Chung Camp, and Argyle Street Camp were still in operation. The Shamshuipo Camp underwent the most changes among the POW camps in Hong Kong, such as the removal of the majority of the officers.
