Kong Shan Observation Post [c.1953- ]

Date Place completed: 
c.1953-01-01 (Year, Month, Day are approximate)

During a RGS visit to the Closed Boarder Area near Sha Tau Kok yesterday, I was able to see (from a distance and behind the barbed wire) the MacIntosh Fort in Kang Shan near Lin Ma Hang Village.  This MacIntosh Fort was one of seven built between 1949-1953 when there was an influx of refugees coming into HK from China.  Commissioner of Police Duncan William MacIntosh built a string of such observation forts to strengthen boarder defense.
