Whilst tidying my storage areas I came across an A4 envelop containing the 'Transmision Certificates' presented on this page (filed out of place and believed 'lost' for some years due to house-moving). Master Chan Tin Sang's dates are sometimes given as 1921-1993 - but my research suggests that 1924-1993 is correct (although some people hold to the earlier date). Mrs Chan is Madam Yat-Tai Cheung, or more properly 'Yuet-Tai Cheung' - but this is the transliteration into English of Chinese ideograms pronounced in the Cantonese (and Hakka) dialects, decided by British Immigration Officers with no training in modern pinyin (and with the surname put 'last' in the Western fashion, instead of 'first' as in the Chinese tradition). Master Chan Tin Sang died in 1993 but had passed-on his family style into my keeping in 1991. This full 'Transmission' was confirmed by 'Por Por' (Chinese Grandmother) Madam Cheung Yat-Tai ten years later at 'Yum Cha' or 'Chinese breakfast' in Purley Way (at the Tai-Tong Restuarant in the Wing Yip Shopping Centre). I include all the variants of these certificates and one that is older and from 1986.
