photos from hong kong early 50s

Hi

Please see attached a link to photos taken by my father in Hong Kong in 1948-1951,

I believe he was involved in putting a radar unit on Tai Mo Shan.

Nice views as well of RAF Kai Tak, the Officer's Mess and Sunderland 'flying boats' in Kowloon Bay.

The 'listening aerials' to the west of the Officer's Mess on the hill had yet to be erected in 1951. Note also the pillbox on Kwun Tong Road at bottom left:

A similar photo to that referenced above comes from the Hedda Morrison Archive dated 1946.

Hi Steve, thanks very much for sharing these. They're great to see.

You might be interested in Norman Lawson's photos too. A few years later, but some mentions of the RAF and Tai Mo Shan.
