Thank you Craig McCourry
2 June 2019 | by hkbill88See all my reviews

The first film using the Battle of Hong Kong as a backdrop in a looong time. It was a great pleasure when Craig McCourry asked me to be involved as the Military Consultant. I have researched and presented the story of the 18 day battle and the following 3 years and 8 months of Japanese occupation. I must say that the director has worked wonders with so little at his disposal and I am proud to have been associated with this fine film. I love the way he pays homage to the young Canadians that came and helped defend Hong Kong in it's time of need, and feel that I must point out also that he supports the HK Ex-Servicemen's Association and the WW2 Veterans Associations by allowing some of the screenings to be used as fund raisers for these two worthwhile groups of veterans. Thank you Craig and cast and crew for a job VERY well done.
