Ask anybody who helped defend Hong Kong against the great tidal wave of Japanese near the end of December, 1941, and they’ll tell you all about “Hong Kong Hooky”.
A Royal Navy Lieutenant Commander whose ship was sunk by the Japanese, Hooky was put in charge of a bunch of military scruffs released from prison to help defend Hong Kong.
When he wasn’t fighting the Japanese, he was drilling his band of deserters and scoundrels into shape with a rock-hard right fist and a gleaming steel hook for a left.
Quite a man was Hooky, quite a man!
