Tung Chung Wooden Pier/Bridge at Ma Wan Chung Village [????- ]

Hi there,

From my observation the pier/bridge had once collasped, but villagers had laid on new planks.  I wished I had took some photos more than 30 years ago when I was there in a school picnic.

War Memorial Nursing Home / Royal Navy Hospital / BMH Mount Kellett [1932-1975]

Date Place completed: 
1932-03-16
Date Place demolished: 
1975-06-30

The War Memorial Nursing Home opened on this site on Wednesday, 16th March 1932 [1].

Despite the name, in its early years it was a civilian hospital. The name referred to the fund that commemorated the people who fought in WW1, and which contributed to the costs of building this hospital.

After WW2, the Royal Navy Hospital in Wanchai was considered in too poor condition to be re-used. So the War Memorial Hospital was taken over by the Navy, and became the new Royal Navy Hospital.
