Gate to military camp



17th / 21st Lancers:  Well, whether or not we can trust wikipedia, there is an entry for the British army that claims this Regiment was in HK between 1960 - 63.

The length and straightness of the road makes me think this was taken at Shek Kong. Looking south(ish) from Kam Tin Road.

Tend to agree with philk that this is the main entrance to Sek Kong Camp. Compare Fred Evan's photo:

and note the 18 Field Ambulance on both signboards.

My old Regiment served in this camp in the 50s and I have been looking for a photo to include on its web site, may I have permission to use it, I will glady give credit. Regards  Chris Dunham

Hi Chris,

Please contact me at

David's email address
and I'll send you the details.

You'll probably enjoy Fred Evans' photos too. He was stationed at Sek Kong in the 1950s.

If you see any photos that spark a memory, please leave a comment. We're always glad to hear more about what we're looking at in these photos.

regards, David
