The Hong Kong Volunteer and ex-PoW Association of NSW is holding its annual Liberation Day Dinner on the first Saturday evening in September. This is a relaxed occasion and we are looking forward to an enjoyable get-together. Members, friends, family, anyone with an interest in Hong Kong are warmly invited to come along.
Liberation Day is celebrated to mark the end of the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong from December, 1941 to August, 1945. On August 30 a Royal Navy fleet entered Victoria Harbour and British control over the colony was restored. This day became “Liberation Day” and was a public holiday until 1997.
This is an informal evening, so just pay your share on the night. Prices for most mains range from $28-$40 (unless you order the live lobster!)
