Keith Lock and Ah Kung

 I feel very honoured. In my search for Ah Kung's Hero Captain Fong @ Roger Cheng, I have been invited to help with a film maker in Toronto.

I have a friend in Toronto who is a film maker.  He has been working on
a script on Roger Cheng and would like to get in touch with you. I told
him I would check with you first.

This is a link to my friend, Keith Lock.  His father, Thomas,  was also
a soldier who was trained in guerrilla warfare but was not involved in
Sarawak.  This link will tell you a bit about Keith.

Take care,
