Read all about our stories
Welcome to Dragons and Lions (formerly Half and Half) here you will find information concerning the forced deportation of the Chinese Merchant Seaman just after WW2, and the stories of their wives and children that were left behind, believing they had been abandoned, and the impact that had on their lives. These men braved German U boats during WW2 only to be tossed aside once they stopped serving their purpose
