Finds and Discoveries in HK
I thought I’d start up a new forum dedicated to “Finds & Discovery’s in HK”. For anything people have found laying around.
I’ll start with the story of my mother, who still lives here in HK.
Last summer she was out shopping, surprisingly enough, and looked down to find a ladies watch on the street. She picked it up threw it into her back and reported it to the Police the following day. When my Mum returned from her summer holiday back in the UK there was a message waiting for her from the Old Bill saying nobody has claimed for the watch and so it is rightfully hers. A few days later she goes to collect it and then enquires into its authenticity. She goes into the brands showroom hands the watch over, 5mins later the bloke comes out and says:
“It an original, White Gold with Diamonds, One year old worth……..$118,000!!”
After my mum regained consciousness, she went back to the Coppers to get a letter to say it is legally hers. Not a bad find. Only in HK would someone loose a watch of that value and not even bother to report it.
Anyway to my finds. I had a quick sweep along the Wong Nai Chung trail with my metal detector and found a few goodies.
I believe they are Japanese bullets, I have tried to identify them as best I can but I’m no expert. I found the rifle heads right outside JL01 and the pistol bullet about 300m from the petrol station. I also found plenty of bits of metal that could well be shrapnel but I just can’t tell.
