I didn’t know we bombed Hong Kong. You learn something every day.
I am wondering about that too.
Apparently the Japs had a headquarters in Hong Kong and they got 3 visits from some B25’s.
Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of war criminals.
Colonel Robert L. Scott strafed the Jap Headquarters and other buildings in 1940 in a P-40. He was a part of the famed “Flying Tigers”. (American volunteers to the Chinese
National Army.) Read the book “God is my Co-pilot”.
B-24’s and B-25’s from the Fourteenth Air Force, based in Kunming, China, and commanded by General Claire Chennault raided Hong Kong.
