Resist to the End

Ray Barman

Hong Kong University Press

This chapter describes how the Senior NCOs and their children in Hong Kong's pre-war garrison had been great friends. It notes that during the evacuation from Hong Kong on the Awatea, and in Australia itself, the Barmans teamed up with the Gollege family — Greta Gollege, daughter Pat, and son Gerry. It describes how the family lived in the same suburb in Sydney and later in Moree in the north of New South Wales. It further explains that Charles Barman's wife and family had spent the war years — like most service families from Hong Kong — in Australia.
