WO2 John Robert Osborne, VC

As a Canadian this was an interesting slice of history.

The plaque reads:

In memory of WO 2 John Robert Osborne VC
Winnipeg Grenadiers
and through him all those men and women, Service and Civilian, of every race and creed who performed acts of gallantry and self sacrifice in the defence of Hong Kong in December 1941. Erected on this site, which was once Victoria Barracks, to commemorate the presence of a British Garrison in Hong Kong.

In grateful acknowledgement to the
Eu Family
