Mr. Cortazzi mentions his meeting with my father, Henry C.W. Sharp from Vickers Armstrong in H.K. I would be interested in contacting Mr. Cortazzi as well as any other persons who may have been in contact with my father.
Thank You
Alan C. H. Sharp

PS
Henry Sharp wrote his Biography, not quite finished due to his sudden death. This biography was never published though extremely interesting.
