    About the song

    About 2,000 Canadian soldiers were sent off to aid the defense of Hong Kong in October 1941. They arrived Hong Kong in late November. The Hong Kong battle broke out soon after the Pearl Harbor attack. They fought bravely alongside the allies for about 2 weeks, sadly Hong Kong surrendered on Xmas day. Over 500 Canadians were killed and 500 wounded.

    Why I want to work with Koreen Perry

    It just happened Koreen and I have military members in our families. We both recognize the contribution of our military to world peace. So I invited Koreen to write and sing this song to pay tribute to the unsung Canadian heroes in the unknown Hong Kong battle in World War II.
