Additional Information: Husband of F. Liddell, of 21 Gloucester Street, Toronto, Canada. Died at Weihsien.

Article about Eric Liddell: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_Liddell

Info about Weihsien: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weixian_Internment_Camp

According to the above article: "On August 17, 1945, two days after the official Japanese surrender to the Allies, a small rescue team parachuted from an American B24 Bomber. The team included six Americans (Major Stanley Staiger, Ensign Jimmy Moore, Lt. Jim Hannon, Ramond Hanchulak, Sgt. Peter Orlich, Sgt. Tad Nagaki) and one Chinese interpreter (Wang Chengnan). The mission, named ("Operation Duck") successfully liberated 1,400 allied civilian prisoners."
