Hello Gerald Chui - what a surprise to read your post about me in Gwulo. I left Hong Kong for England in 1962 and I have settled here ever since! Would you be Chui Huk Fai? I remember I could see your house in Cain Road from my balcony. It's great to reconnect again. My email is bosskwok@hotmail.com. Hope to hear from you guys soon. Robert

Members of the Hong Kong Riding (Jockey?) Club sometime before the war - perhaps about 1935-1939?  

In the 2nd row down, 5th and 6th from right, are Ron Brooks and Helene Caudron (before their marriage in 1939).  They met at the Club when - according to the story - Ron gave Helene a hand to mount her horse!

Rev Frank Short is mentioned in the post about Helen Walker Wylie's wedding in 1936 - and here he is in 1931 (standing in the back row) with the Committee of Kowloon Union Church. I do have names for most of those pictured, and if anyone is curious, will happily post them.

Hong Kong Volunteer Defence Corps (Signals) Christmas photo 1939

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1939

This photo is taken from the 1939 Christmas card sent by my uncle Leslie Warren to his family in England. He has drawn a cross over his head. I don't know where the photo was taken but there seems to be a church behind. I also don't know if this photo is already on line, but thought it important to post it in case it contains family members of people who consult the Gwulo site and who may not have survived the war.
