John Pownall Reeves

Hong Kong University Press

This is an account of Reeves’ dealing with intelligence operations in Macao. He did not consider what he did espionage, but there was a price on his head. He had his bodyguard with him and carried a gun all the time. This chapter also recounts the story of the Japanese’s taking of the Saion, the American air raids in 1945, the shutting-down of the Macao Tribune, as well as Reeves and his staff helping the American airmen and other residents escape to Free China.
