The back of the Tai Pak floating restaurant is mid centre and I am fairly sure that the buildings at centre right are on Wu Nam Street, the old waterfront, where the ferries landed.  (Andrew S)

This list of items issued to new recruits in the R.A.F details everything.  Daily kit inspections took place during initial training and any missing items had to be replaced at the airman's expense.  (Andrew S)

Many airmen at Little Sai Wan had suits and other clothes made by Jay Bee outfitters who had premises in Central, then in 1958 in Tsim ShaTsui and later in North Point.  The man on the right might be Mr. Hira, our usual contact - but he looks rather young.  (Andrew S)

I think that this photogaph was taken from the Ap Lei Chau side of the harbour, as I believe the next one was. The buildings on the left look like those on Wu Nam Street, the waterfront in the 1950s. (Andrew S)

In mid 1958, the camp's new cinema, called The Astra as were all R.A.F. cinemas, came into operation . We were able to watch many more films in far greater comfort than had been possible in the Mess.  I think that the Astra was open every evening. Older readers will recognise many of the names of the film stars who enterrtained us in those days.  In 1987 I visited the camp before its demolition and took this photograph inside the Astra.  (Andsrew S)
