In Wanchai, the enemy suddenly ordered that 3,000 buildings be emptied within two hours.
The area is surrounded by barbed wire thorns, and no one can enter or exit casually.
The residents of the 3,000 families who were evicted were only allowed to carry some portable things, and they immediately wandered on the streets with nowhere to stay.
Want to go back to the country?
At that time, people returning home were very crowded, and it was extremely difficult for them to buy tickets for their turn.

Soon, when these evicted people had found a place to live, they allowed them to go back to live, as long as they paid a little rent.
However, no one dared to accept this favor, because they were afraid that at some point, as long as the enemy was happy, they would be expelled for no reason.
Later, we heard the real story: It turned out that the allies once sank a transport ship bound for Hong Kong from Japan, which contained 725 technicians, and was going to prosper Hong Kong, but it was sunk midway.
This is why the enemy confiscated these 3,000 buildings and later asked the owners to return them.

In order to calm the minds of the people in the enemy's country, and to prove the fact of the glorious victory of the imperial army preached in their newspapers, they began to transport stolen goods back to their own country.
Unfortunately, the Allied submarines had been waiting for a long time and did not relax for a minute.
Four Japanese transport ships full of rice quietly left the coast of Hong Kong, three were sunk, and the other had to sail back to Hong Kong.
Therefore, the next day, Hong Kong newspapers wrote about the supreme grace of the imperial army, saying that the governor of Japan had brought a boatload of rice from Saigon to relieve the hunger and poverty of the people.
Anyone passing a Japanese Gendarmerie guard station must bow.
Even those who ride bicycles have to get off and get on after bowing.
The most interesting thing is that the bus must stop, and the passengers, ticket sellers, and drivers inside get off one by one, take off their hats and bow, and then get on the bus and drive.
What if you don't bow?
Slapping the mouth is still a light punishment.
The Japanese military police can punish you to stand at the military police station and stick a note on your nose, explaining the fault of not bowing in violation of the rules.
He can make you stand for as long as he likes, and he can stab you half to death with a spear.

There were two girls who were well dressed and beautiful.
They think that beauty can overwhelm everything, so they pass the military police station proudly without bowing.
They walked proudly, completely forgetting the brutality and brutality of the enemy soldiers after they occupied Hong Kong.
The gendarme claimed to be the representative of the Japanese emperor, and thought he had been extremely insulted.
He ordered the two girls to bow, and the girls ignored him with giggles and continued on their way.
The gendarme immediately took up the pistol and aimed it at the threat, so the girl had to stop, with a look of panic on her beautiful cheek.
The ferocious military police approached them with guns, and before the girls had any idea what was going to happen, they were brutally whipped on their cheeks, arms, and bodies.
The Japanese gendarmes took them to the gendarme station again, pressed their heads down, and made their noses touch the rules of "pedestrians bowing". Let them go.
When two other girls walked past the gendarmerie station, they saw the gendarmerie looking away and didn't see them, so they didn't bow. Who knew that they were also violently beaten by the gendarmerie.
The military police can ignore you and ignore you, but you still have to salute.
But there are some gendarmes who don't like you to salute. If you bow to him, he will punish you.
