Tai Wai WW2 Bunkers & Description of site.

The long bunker at the Tai Wai Bunkers. Photograph taken looking away from the entrance to the building site. This may have been BN HQ for 2nd Bn 14th Punjab Regiment given that this is a large string of military shelters, situated close to Tai Wai and Tai Po Road and in the centre of the Punjab manned PBs. It may also have been used as Battery HQs for forward guns, although Mainland RA HQ was located in shelters close to Mainland Brigade HQ at the far end of Waterloo Road. The bunkers can only be viewed from the building site. I entered by crashing down the hillside from the perimeter of  Po Leung Kuk Y.C. Cheng Centre at a point where there is a pylon. This got me down to the building site which I entered from the rear. I walked out the main entrance of the site. These structures are being damaged by proximity to a major building site and because they can only be viewed from the building site they are very inaccessible and may become more so when the building is completed. The site is on Sha Tin Heights Road and between residential complex Godi and the Po Leung Kuk Centre. Philip Cracknell
