I have a photo of my father-in-law 'Jack' Macintyre Brown in Hong Kong on a motorbike and side car dated 1922. The rego number is HK 505. The HK is above the 505.
We were told Jack had the first motor bike in Hong Kong. He probably had earlier bikes than the motorbike and side car. He was born in 1900 and arrived in Hong Kong during the first world war.
Thanks for the photo. Please can you also tell us more about your father-in-law? eg where he was working and living at this time, and when he finally left Hong Kong?
Jack Brown was appointed Revenue Officer in the dept of Imports and Exports in 1921 in the British Colonial Civil Service. Not sure where he lived. Left HK in 1949.
Thanks for the extra information. I've made a page for him at:
Amhem: Was his wife named Edith as I note there was a John William Brown married to Edith with children Edith and Christina travelling to HK in Juky 1931 from UK.
Yes his wife was named Edith
