Hong Kong Early 60s in the RAF

I lived at RAF Kaitak from 1961-63 and worked at the radar station at Taimoshan. I remember Typhoon Wanda in 1962 when 5 RAF friends were killed at High Island.The  RAF could have taken them off before the typhoon hit.I was a pall bearer for an aussie friend name Dusty.A pal of mine married a chinese girl who worked at Shatin Babies Home and as I had a Hong Kong driving license I was the chauffeur.

I've added some links to your post above, where there are some photos of the places you mentioned. Any memories and/or photos gratefully received!

I didn't know that there were RAF men killed during that typhoon. Was there an RAF station on High Island at the time?
