    Absolutely - he was First Lord of the Admiralty (political head of the Royal Navy) before he was Prime Minister. Hong Kong was a very important Naval base for the British for a very long time.

    As British Prime Minister, it seems likely that he did, yes.  It was a trading post in the Far East.

    By 1890 he knew what Hong Kong was. Harrow reported he excelled at history.

    Winston Churchill knew that Hong Kong, if attacked by the Japanese, could not be defended or relieved. Hong Kong would have to be sacrificed. Churchill's order to Sir Mark Young, the Governor, was that the garrison must resist to the end, and this they did.
