Welcome to the official website of the Hong Kong Volunteer and ex-PoW Association of NSW

The Hong Kong Volunteer and ex-PoW Association of NSW has two principal aims:

  • To keep alive the memories of Hong Kong in the Pacific War 1941-1945
  • To recognise the role of military volunteering in Hong Kong between its beginnings in 1854 and the disbandment of the Royal Hong Kong Regiment (The Volunteers) in 1995.

The Association was formed in 1996 in Sydney, Australia, out of the amalgamation of two existing organisations: one comprising ex Prisoners-of-War from Hong Kong and one fulfilling functions of a regimental association based on former members of the Royal Hong Kong Regiment (The Volunteers). The Association's present title was adopted soon after the amalgamation.

The Association is recognised as a branch by the Royal Hong Kong Regiment (The Volunteers) Association in Hong Kong and maintains contact with sister Associations in the United Kingdom and Canada.

The Association is a member of the Australian Reserve Forces Day Council and participates in the Reserve Forces Day parade in July each year.
