Lt. R.G. Liveing, editor of Vol VI of the HMS Titania's submariners' journal "Light Airs",  is here photographed shortly before capsizing at Repulse Bay. It is striking that suits and ties are often the 1920s and even 1930s beachwear of choice in Hong Kong. Highly impractical in this case! Liveing was one of the younger officers of HM Submarine L3.
