Repulse Bay WRF.jpg

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1929

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.

This photo, again from the 1928-1929 album of WR Fell, shows five of the crew of HM Submarine L3 relaxing at Repulse Bay. Unfortunately only four are named. I've found a Sub Lt Thyne on HMS Titania's sick list in 1921. Lt Lloyd is commemorated on p. 3 of the journal Light Airs where at Chefoo “It is understood that the local police requested to be informed whenever Lt. Lloyd went ashore.” Perhaps he is here recovering from a night out. Phillips is mentioned in Light Airs as Dr Phillips.

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.
