From 1975 to 1995 I worked for the Royal Hong Kong Police in the field of archival records management. My weekends and holidays were spent in the Hong Kong Colonial Cemetery recording the memorial inscriptions and burial records.
On returning home I was posted to the Metropolitan Police Archives Department where I acquired an in depth knowledge of the Met's historical service records which are held at The National Archives and elsewhere.
In retirement I continue the Far East research by sourcing Hong Kong records throughout the UK and the lives of British Expatriates who found themselves in Hong Kong 1842 - 1941 are slowly being pieced together. The stories of some of the families whom I have researched are presented as talks to Archives and local family history societies. If you think I may be of some assistance with your own family history research then please send me an e-mail.
