Remembered Today:

Shot at Dawn

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am currently reading Shot at Dawn by Julian Putkowski and Julian Sykes. Hei Chi Ming (as he is referred to in the book) was a labourer in the Chinese Labour Corps. He was convicted of murder and executed at Rouen on 21st Feb 1920. I am unable to find this man's record in the CWGC archive - he is buried in St. Sever Cem Ext. Can any members help?

Rgds,

Alex

Hi Tom,

KUNG was also executed for murder on the same day as HEI at Rouen and buried in St. Sever - so this is not him.

Rgds,

Alex

I'd tried Hoi, Hue, Chu, Choi....

Me as well but I always go back to steak and chips.
