A MOVING account of Japanese occupation of Hong Kong through the eyes of a prisoner is one of the highlights of an exhibition to mark the end of World War II. It states in part: 'You are in the power of your enemy. You owe your life to his humanity, your daily bread to his compassion. You must obey his orders, await his pleasures, possess your soul in patience.' 'Life Under the Japanese Occupation' opens at the Hong Kong Museum of History today and comprises 40 photographs and more than 100 items of memorabilia. Exhibits have been bought from collectors or lent for the two-month exhibition which traces the three years and eight months of occupation from the invasion of Hong Kong to its liberation. The first-hand account exhibit is in a notebook of Shamshuipo camp prisoner of war C. P. Basto, and provides a glimpse of life in the camp. 'It is a melancholy state,' he scrawled in black ink under a transcript of a speech by Winston Churchill on the fall of Hong Kong. After writing of being in the enemy's power he continues: 'The days are very long. Hours crawl like paralytic centipedes. 'Moreover, the whole atmosphere of prison, even the most easy and best regulated prison is odious. Companions quarrel about a trifle and get the least possible pleasure from each other's society.' Meanwhile, a 10-strong delegation from Hong Kong is in Britain to mark the anniversary. Today, Jack Edwards, of the Royal British Legion in Hong Kong, makes an emotional return to his home town of Cardiff to commemorate the event.
