Thanks Tony, that catches the angle well. Any idea who the soldiers are?

Sorry, David - missed your query above (two years ago!)

These are Royal Engineers embarking at Holts Wharf on their way to Shanghai. They had stayed for some months in barracks at Sham Shui Po, though had an encampment in Tsim Sha Tsui - on Nathan Road, opposite the Peninsula.
