Here is another photo of the Peninsula Hotel which shows up the wartime camouflage colours better. The roofs of the KCR Station also appear to be blotched and darker than normal.
 
Your
linked wartime photo of Arthur Ball's set on Flickr also shows the Pen in camouflage colours immediately after the war. [In Arthur's photo you can see the Japanese had been busy with the camouflage paint. Even the clock tower has been given a coat. MrB]

Photo courtesy of reader 'moddsey'. In a photo from the 1910's this building is called Wellington Barracks, used by the British Army. When the Royal Navy returned to Hong Kong after the Second World War, the original HMS Tamar had been scuttled, so the Wellington Barracks became their new base and was renamed 'HMS Tamar'.
