I'm beginning to see some links between the mourners who were the group of friends and associates of my grandfather Charles Warren, in that, according to Carl Smith, George Avenell was the brother-in-law of F.P. Lenfesty, one of the other mourners mentioned in the obituary. That said, the attribution is to Mr and Mrs E.G. Avenell, so there may be a mistake, but I can't find an E.G. Avenell. George Avenell came to Hong Kong with the Sherwood Forresters in 1902 and thence to Shanghai. He returned to Hong Kong as Armourer Staff Sergeant to the Police and also joined the HK Volunteers.

The message on the advert makes one wonder what actually was "1950s English style steak cooking"!

On the same page of the HK Telegraph, 2 November 1929 that carries the announcement of the departure for Home of HMS Titania and the 4th Submarine Flotilla for the following morning, there is a report on The Titania Farewell Dance that took place on 1st November at Lane Crawford's. It looks as if it might have been the same occasion as this photo records, labelled "Big Children's Party 1929 Xmas," but on return to the ship. The date has been corrected from 1928 to 1929. Titania would no longer have been in Hong Kong at Christmas 1929. The article mentions a fancy dress competition.
