Prince Philip visits HK
Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Thursday, January 1, 1959


The photo of the royal barge at the Civil Aviation pontoon steps was taken on 7 March 1959. After inspection of the troops at Kai Tak (see here ), Prince Philip boarded the barge to take him back to the royal yacht, Britainnia.



I used to play on that pontoon around that time, but no one ever rolled out a red carpet on it for me!  (It wasn't freshly painted either!)
