I believe that the building on the hillside at the extreme left is the Officers' Mess. (Andrew S)

Can anyone identify where this was taken?

Thank you for identifying the place.

Battys Car Park.

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1962

Apologies for the low resolution of the following images. This was taken overlooking the small gharry park that served R.A.F. Battys., with the Mountain Lodge Guard House/Police post in the centre. (Andrew S)

Kam Tin Sweet Garden Restaurant.

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1955

This photograph was taken by Tom Gregg in 1955.  The restaurant along with the Happy Home Store, nearby, was popular with airmen billeted at Sek Kong.

Roy Edge at Lyemun N.A.A.F.I. c 1952.

When I and several old 367 members visited the Lyemun holiday camp in December 2007, the building that had been their N.A.A.F.I. was being used as a cafe - but it was closed for the winter.  There cannot have been many N.A.A.F.I.  buildings with such an impressive view.  (Andrew S)

Brian Gates is attempting to rid his bed frame of the bed bugs that plagued us all. It was said that they came to Little Sai Wan from the old Lyemun camp along with the old bed fames and mattresses.  We usually set fire to the metal bed frames with cigarette lighter fuel (petrol?) and that worked for a while, but you couldn't do that with the mattresses.  I suspect that the commissioned officers and senior non commissioned officers were issued with new bed fames and mattresses - no bugs for them!  (Andrew S)

367 Signals Unit Kai Tak.

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1953

This is a very unusal photograph as it possibly shows all the members of the 367 Signals Unit when the personnel were living at Kai Tak some time between 1953 and 56.  Perhaps the airmen actually on Watch were not present for the photograph.  (Andrew S)

Wanchai Hennessy Road

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1959

I wonder whether this is a commercial print. The tram track and buildings might help to identify the exact location.  (Andrew S)

Thanks to Thomas for his more precise identification.

A commercial print? Any suggestions as to the location?  (Andrew S)
