I think I vaguely remember this view? Is it part of command workshops behind Shamshupo Barracks,if so I was here for 5 months mar.- July 1957.

May be Blackdown Barracks, Kowloon.

Having looked at the latest photo here with more detail, Sham Shui Po it is. Cheers!

Hi Tony,

Great photo. Were you in the Army here in the 1950s? I am writing a Book on the "First 100 years of Motoring in Hiong Kong" and would appreciate hearing any motoring stories you may have (ian@netvigator.com). I have good Army vehicle photos of the Queen's Birthday Parade in 1958.

The Bedford Truck above brought back memories of my chik=ldhood in N.Ireland, the Army were still using these innthe 1970s and 1980s!!

Best,               IAN
