Photos of Hong Kong from the last 3 years and 8 months are few and far between, but that is about to change with the arrival of the Allied Fleet.

The Canadian ship, HMCS Robert, was the fifth ship of the fleet to enter the harbour, and the first to berth in Kowloon, at Holt's Wharf. You can read about the Robert's experience that day, and see photos, at: http://gwulo.com/node/28372

Over on the aircraft carrier HMS Indomitable, Arthur Ball was gathering a very interesting set of photos: https://www.flickr.com/photos/peterball/albums/72057594063683584
