1940 HK Police and reservists

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

The photo is courtesy of Michael Martin. He says it is a "1940 group photo (HK Police and reservists) taken in the Central Police Station".

Michael's grandfather, AJ Savitsky, joined the Hong Kong Police Reserve in 1936.

I've labelled the men in the photo. If you recognise anyone, please could you let us know their name in the comments below?

Thanks & regards, David

1938 Peak School staff & students

1938

We're wearing our winter uniform, so I believe this was taken at the end of term in 1938, just before Christmas. It's taken on the small patch of grass just below the school.

I've annotated the people, and added in the names that are known, as well as any guesses. If you can recognise anyone, please could you let us know in the comments below?

Not sure of the context here at all. I think the photo was taken in the early 1950's. My father, Alan is just left of centre. He may have been in the Home Afairs department at this time? (He worked for several Govt. Departments during his career with the HK Government). I leave it up to the Gwulo detectives to fathom it out?

Wartime wedding

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1942

The wedding of Thomas Edgar and Evelina d'Oliveira, June 29, 1942.

Thomas Edgar was a baker, and not at that time interned in Stanley. Evelina was Portuguese, but voluntarily entered Stanley when Tom was interned in 1943.

The Japanese man in the photo is almost certainly Lieutenant Tanaka (not the Tanaka who was executed for war crimes), a man whose helpfulness to Allied prisoners was recorded by Selwyn Selwyn-Clarke.

The church I believe to be St. Joseph's.

Soldiers

1910

Came across the picture in family archive. Man second from left is identified as J. Olson who was my grandfather. Was this the local defence force as the picture was definitely taken before, during or just after the First World War?

I know that as my grandfather left HK in 1923.

Can anybody identify any of the others who might have living relatives who I might contact for further research? Also where was the picture taken?

Many thanks,

Sean

St Joseph's School class picture?

Date picture taken (to nearest decade for older photos): 
1915

This picture is of a class or group at St Joseph's School probably taken around 1915. The pupil on the right of the picture with the green ring around him may be one of my uncles as the snap is in our family collection. However, if anybody can identify anybody or has anything to say about the picture I would be interested to hear.
