A walk around central Hong Kong island

StephenThe British Crown colony of Hong Kong was attacked on the same day that bombs fell on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, and from this time the desperate struggle of the Hong Kong garrison against superior forces was overshadowed by the news of the struggle of her allies in various other parts of Asia. The battle for Hong Kong lasted only 17 days – the Japanese were massed on the land border of Hong Kong’s New Territories, but there was a spirited defence even though the British Prime Minister Churchill regarded it as indefensible, although original plans said the colony could hold for five months.

Sing Khon border crossing

Sing Khon border crossing

By 1944 the tide of the war in Burma was turning. Non combatant units, including headquarters staff,  Japanese civilians and members of the Burmese puppet government began an exodus of lower Burma and Rangoon in late April 1945. It was organised panic. The majority of the armed Burmese turned against their former allies and hundreds of Japanese were killed on their flight south to Thailand. Prior to this the  Japanese High Command in Rangoon had ordered the construction of a road, the Mergui Road – from Pratchaub Khiri Khan through Tenasserim to Mergui ( Myeik) on the south Burma coast to aid their escape. Allied prisoners were used, but the majority were  Asian labour – the Romusha. Few of those survived. Read more

The other Victory Monument in Bangkok

Chao Anuvong - a statue erected in Vientiane in 2010 defiantly facing Thailand across the Mekong River

Chao Anuvong – a statue erected in Vientiane in 2008 defiantly facing Thailand across the Mekong River

A post on this blog deals with the better known Victory Monument in Bangkok and now we shall explore the site of the first Victory Monument in Wat Chakrawat, Chinatown. The temple was built between 1827 and 1829, precisely the time when the strained relations between the Siam of Rama III and the tributary state of Vientiane under it’s Prince, Anuvong, came to a head. Wat Chakrawat became the focus of the final stages of this rivalry – which is still very much alive today. Read more
