Wondering if anyone can put names to any of the very clear faces here - Zetland Lodge 1927, my grandfather Kenneth Kingsley Staple was Grand Master that year, standing 3rd from right, front row.  I think the man to his left is Mr A J Pilgrim who was his best man. In hopes Deb Coxon

In the late 50s and early 60s our family was fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to live in HK whilst our father served there as a Petty Officer in  the Royal Navy. My three eldest brothers and two sisters arrived there in  1958 and with some additional baggage (me) we left in December 1961 to return to North Wales. My father retired from the navy in December 1965. Both parents have sadly passed but as a child I remember them talking fondly  of their time in HK.

Standing on the left and smiling is my friend Mr. Ho Yin Guai who worked at a European bank.  Ho introduced me to the Praying Mantis school taught by shifu (Cantonese for Master) Wong Hon Fan.   Counting Ho as part of the second row, yours truly is fifth from the left.  This photo was taken on August 13, 1963 at a restaurant at which time diplomas for various levels were handed out, and skills presented by students.

This is the second of two photos I recently received from a family friend.  I interpret the title at the top as photo taken in 1936, the school's name - likely located in Kowloon.  It mentions " 中學" but considering the age of the students, it appears they just started an early level/grade at this high school.  I have no knowledge how the schools' structure worked in those days.
