The Bronze Lions
Can anyone provide an answer to a question that has puzzled me over many years? The shrapnel damage on the two bronze lions outside the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank in Central is only on their relatively protected sides closest to the bank. Why, if we can reasonably assume that the lions would always have been positioned facing away from the bank, as they are today, is there no shaprnel damage on the side facing the harbour and Tsim Sha Tsui from where shells would have been fired during December 1941?
