University of Bristol - Historical Photographs of China reference number: Ro-n0777. Harrison Forman (1904-1978) was a friend of Malcolm Rosholt. Forman showed Rosholt how to shoot pictures with the latter's new Leica. Rosholt wrote: "He (Forman) had a light meter which he waived around a minute and told me to set my camera at 6.3 and 100. I never changed this setting when outdoors." (Rosholt's camera settings: aperture of f6.3 and a shutter speed of one hundredth of a second). Rosholt's Leica was purchased for him in Hong Kong by H.S. "Newsreel" Wong. Harrison Forman: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harrison_Forman.
