My memories of Eric Liddell by Nornal Cliff August 1943 to May 1995 Weihsien Camp
"Following the Japanese raid on Pearl Harbor on December 8, 1941, Britain and America were at war with Japan. The British community of Tianjin were then very much under the control of the Japanese military.
During March, 1943, all enemy nationals in Tianjin were instructed by the Japanese to prepare for a journey to an internment camp in Weihsien ‎(now known as Weifany)‎, some four hundred miles away. They were to go in three groups on the 23rd, 28th and 30th March, 1943, and the luggage for each group was to be sent four days in advance. The luggage to be sent for each person could include a bed, bedding and two boxes, and each traveller could take on the train two suitcases as hand luggage. The authorities omitted to mention the need to bring cooking utensils and tools.
The Westerners arrived at the chosen meeting place at the Recreation Grounds in Tianjin. The weather was cold, and they were all wearing fur hats, thick overcoats and woollen scarves. To make sure that nothing was left behind because of weight they were pushing all kinds of contraptions - improvised wheelbarrows, prams and Chinese-style poles with buckets on each end.
At 7.30pm the Japanese inspected the luggage, and then the ragtag group moved slowly along the street with their awkward burdens to the beginning of the French Concession, then on to the Bund, and across the international bridge to the railway station. During this mile-long walk the streets were lined with sympathetic and silent onlookers of many nationalities. Japanese camera men snapped pictures of the crocodile line for propaganda purposes in the home press.
The Allied prisoners were crowded into third clasee carriages, and the train left at 7.40pm. There was nothing to eat or drink, and the adult passengers sat awake all night while the younger ones slept fitfully. After changing trains at Jinan, they arrived at Weihsien in the afternoon of the following day. Buses and trucks took them through the massive gates of the city, across three miles of countryside on a rough road, which led to the former American Presbyterian mission campus."

Dear Hugo
Thank you for sending me the family tree under construction.
My father said his father's father was born in 1820 and left England to be a merchant in Hong Kong in 1840. He didn't say anything about Spain or Bedfordshire.
From their forenames this was apparently a Jewish family. Maybe at some point they came to Bedfordshire from Spain, via Flanders, which was a Spanish possession, and finding many Minneys in Beds, adopted that name.
To go back in history, Jews were banished from England after the massacre at York in 1190, and were invited back by Oliver Cromwell in 1660. Queen Isobella, the mother of Catharine of Aragon, threw the Jews and Moors out of Spain in around 1492. Afterwards, until recent times, the main Jewish cultural centre was Bagdad ‎(I mean it was multicultural)‎
I remember my father mentioning Cyril Minny and Australia. One time when I wasn't here, I think about 3 years ago, John and Margaret Minney called and left their name and address. I haven't done anything about it, but I enclose it for you. I have something called Burke's World Book of Minneys. Surprisingly, there aren't any in Durham. The greatest British concentration is in Northants, and for Australia, they haven't included any Minneys.
Looking at your family tree:-
Hetty was born April 15 or 16, 1916. Penny Chisholm was born Penny Rubinstein, i.e. Hetty's first husband. She was born Jan 12, 1939.
My mother was born August 11, 1898. Her youngest sister, Marjorie, was born Dec 1906. She married Lawrence Wallace. Their daughter, Susan, is married to Ben Taylor. They have 3 sons: Robin, Will and John. Susan was born in India, Feb 27, 1944, and came here as a baby.
I'll do more on my mother's family one of these days.
Addresses:
Hetty, 14 Hill Brow, Beacon Hill Road, Ewshot, Farnham, Surrey, GU10 5
Ethel - no address
David Duke Cohen - check with Rachel
Susan Taylor, 22 Townsend Terrace, Richmond upon Thames, TW9 1XL
Rachel Shirlay ‎(and nephew Roddy)‎ 114 Thurlow Park Road, West Dulwich, London SE21 8HP
Yes I had a nice news letter from Alison, saying how well Emma is doing.
Lots of love from Primrose
