Notice biographique

Major J.T. Loranger was a Canadian lawyer with the Office of the Judge Advocate General (JAG) of the Department of National Defence. He served with No. 5 War Crimes Court of the Japanese War Crimes Tribunal in Hong Kong from May to October 1947. While in Hong Kong, Loranger also worked as a liaison to the British War Graves Registration Unit that was operating in the area. Major Loranger died in 1983.

Historique de la conservation

The papers were originally part of the estate of Major Loranger who died in 1983. They were given to Mr. Claire Manson of 420 Richelieu, Beloeil, and then given in 1983 to Major W.A. Plouffe of the Office of the Judge Advocate General. The file was then discovered at the OJAG Eastern Region while cleaning the library in 2004.
