This is the 4th Submarine Flotilla rowing four in action referred to in moddsey's earlier post.

The regatta, held by the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club at North Point, was reported in the Hong Kong Sunday Herald of 24 March, 1929.

The photo comes from the 1928-1929 album of William Richmond Fell, who coxed the four.

Four years later at the outbreak of war, Peter, a weekend sailor, was called up in the Hong Kong Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve.

China Sugar Refinery - East Point 1870s

In trying to trace a possible relative listed in 1872 at "China Sugar Refinery East Point "- was that part of Jardine Matheson & Co ?

The books I've consulted don't go into this subsidiary company.

thank you for your help,
