Ho Chi Minh worked in London pub
Ho Chi Minh worked in hotel in West Ealing
The Drayton Court looks like a normal hotel on the outskirts of London - but it has rather an unusual claim to fame.
Former Vietnamese leader Ho Chi Minh once worked in its kitchens, as a cleaner and dishwasher.
Before playing a key role in Vietnamese history, driving out forces from Japan, France and the United States, Ho Chi Minh spent part of his youth in London, cleaning up after diners in West Ealing.
Ho Chi Minh was born in May 1890 in Hoang Tru, in central Vietnam.
In 1911, he began work as a cook on a French steamer, enabling him to travel to the US and Europe.
He arrived in London in 1913 and spent several years there before moving on to Paris, Russia and China.
But little is known about Ho Chi Minh's time in England, according to Quynh Le from the BBC's Vietnamese Service. "His time in Great Britain is among the least documented of his life. We don't know exactly when he worked at the pub, or how long he was there," said Quynh Le.
"He wasn't very political at that time," he added.
In his autobiography, Ho Chi Minh also said he worked as a snow sweeper and boiler operator, before moving to the Drayton Court Hotel, a busy establishment near the railway.
He then went on to work at the Carlton Hotel in Haymarket, which has a plaque commemorating his time there.

Subject: About Tang Tuyet Minh, a Chinese woman, the mistress of Nguyen Ai Quoc.

Facts disclosed by Lesquendieu.

Hanoi, October 28, 1931.

Tang Tuyet Minh is a Chinese of Guang dong, daughter of a rich merchant who has 3 wives, 12 children, two daughters and a son among them earned their Ph.D. degrees in the United States. All the three died after returning to China.

Tuyet Minh attended a midwife course at the same time with Luong Hue Quan, the wife of Lam Duc Thu. Graduated a midwife but she has never worked as one.

When her father died, her mother who was his third wife, her younger sister, her younger brother and herself were evicted from her father's home by his other two wives.

I don't know what has happened to her siblings from then on. However, in 1925, Tuyet Minh was living in poverty with her mother in Dong Son area, Gwang dong. It was at the time when Lam Duc Thu introduced her to Nguyen Ai Quoc whom she had to marry only because she was needy.

It was not Nguyen Ai Quoc who initiated Tuyet Minh into Communism. At the time, he only spoke little Chinese. He brought her into contact with members of the Women Liberation League , which was an organization of the China Communist Party.

Those members taught her Communism. She became a member of the league but with the least enthusiasm.

As Nguyen Ai Quoc's wife, she was living with him at Borodine's home, Dai Dong Street (number forgotten) near Nhan Hung Cai, across the street from the office of the "Guang dong Province Party Committee" (1)

In 1927, Nguyen Ai Quoc took to flight, Tuyet Minh returned to Dong Son area to live with her mother in poverty.

Despite of narrow circumstances, she never lived again with Nguyen Ai Quoc when he reappeared at the late 1929.(2) They met once by chance. She had never loved him whom she thought too old to her and she got married to only because she was too poor.

I think she must have had another husband now. Otherwise she is unable to provide for herself as she has a 70-year-old mother to support. At least she has to work as a midwife.

She has a half-brother (of the same father), who is a rich merchant in Hong Kong and able to help her, but she did not visit him for a long time as she was not getting along with his wife.

Physiology: About 27 years old. Small stature. Frail. Light complexion. Black hair in a bob, half combed backward, half in bangs. Round face. Narrow mouth. Straight nose. Lively black eyes. Agile.


(1) Of the Kuomintang.

(2) Nguyen Ai Quoc himself told me so.

Notes of the SCR (Intelligence service): On the contrary, agent Pinot said that the mistress of Nguyen Ai Quoc did go to see him in Hong Kong and was living in Van Chay area before Nguyen Ai Quoc got arrested.
