Before the big "PW Supply Missions", several dozen B-29's went out to scout locations of the camps.. then over the next few weeks they made repeat flights, but with hundreds of tonnes of supplies for the starving, tortured allied POWs

Kowloon Magistracy in the foreground (https://gwulo.com/node/14864) so the camp should be the King's Park refugee camp (https://gwulo.com/node/34833). I don't think it was ever called the Ma Tau Chung camp, though I'm not sure what it was used for during the Japanese occupation.

Great photos but whoever wrote the captions on them got the locations muddled up!

Agreed, King Park Refugee Camp.
