Afraid this photo isn't very good quality, but may nevertheless be of historical interest. Like others I have recently uploaded, it comes from WR Fell's 1928-1929 album during his period of service with the 4th Submarine Flotilla.

This seems to be a group of the officers of HM Submarine L3 with a group of female companions, unfortunately unnamed. I think Lt R.G. Liveing is on the left. It looks rather chilly and must be a formal occasion. I don't want to swamp the site with submariners and submarines. Let me know if everyone has seen enough. There are a few more Hong Kong photos of named officers who went on to serve in WW2. Much of the rest of WR Fell's album is of the coast around Weihaiwei and Bia's Bay and various  excursions to small bays.
