I WAS prompted to write to the South China Morning Post, after a news report in a national newspaper in the UK. I am blind and when I was listening to my tape of The Observer, which I get every Tuesday, there was an item about the Post. The report brought back memories for me. As a young man I took part in the final air assault on Japan, then went to Nagasaki and later to Hong Kong, to do relief work. On Friday, September 23, 1945, I bought a copy of the Post. It cost 10 cents. It was only a single news-sheet, Volume I, No 56, so only 55 had been sold before I bought my copy. I still have it 50 years on and it is still in a reasonable and readable state. My regards to Hong Kong, I hope your problems with China can be resolved.
