The China Convoy

The FAU China Convoy Reunion Group organises the annual reunion of original members of the Convoy and is attended by their families and friends of those Convoy members now deceased.

The FAU China Convoy group have their own dedicated website :

The purpose of this website is to support those endeavours and encourage wider participation in our undertakings. As well as describing the history of the China Convoy and its experiences, the group has sought to outline the activities of the FAU as a whole and the broader context of conscientious objection during the Second World War. The group’s intention is that the site will promote understanding of the FAU China Convoy’s experiences and achievements, and that it may provide a useful resource for researchers interested in the study of the FAU and of conscientious objection and of this period in China’s history.

The FAU China Convoy Group welcome enquiries from anyone seeking further information about the history of the China Convoy, and they will endeavour to respond to all such enquiries as promptly as may be practicable. Should you wish to participate in the group’s activities,or would like to make an enquiry about the China Convoy and the Reunion Group, you make contact them from their web site.

You can also register with a user name and password which will give you access to notices, periodic updates on our activities and allow you to participate in our on-line discussion forum

As well as organising the reunions, the group seeks to preserve the story of the Convoy by identifying memoirs, diaries,letters,photographs and other records relating to its history.

As part of that process the group are endeavouring to make contact with other Convoy members and their friends and families.

公誼救護隊 Gong Yi Jiu Hu Du – the China Convoy’s Chinese name which roughly translates as “public/justice friendship plead/save protect group” – it was also nicknamed “the public silence group.
