CROOK, Alfred H., B.A.— Ed. at Wesley Coll., Dublin ; honorman and gold medallist, Trin. Coll., Dublin ; M.A., 1905 ; F.R.G.S. ; aiist. mast., Wesley Coll., Dublin ; junr. asst. mast., Queen's Coll., Hong Kong, Oct., 1902 ; sen. asst., 1908 ; lecturer  ...

Taking those dates and looking in the Civil Establishments for 1906 turns up Alfred Herbert Crook, Junior Assistant Master at Queen's College, appointed on 14th Jan 1903. He likely arrived in Hong Kong around that time.
