    I reconise the smallest of the 3 buildings in middle of this photo as the training centre as I was a REME national serviceman there for 5 months in 1957 (have photo sitting on armoured car) also the open gate in bottom of photo where we would gather to watch the passing by of many Chinese funerals. I was later posted to REME L.A.D. to B squadron 1st. Royal Tank Reg. in Sek Kong as Driver / wireless operator in a Churchill ARV. – 50 ZR 30. —Memories, Memories – Thanks for the chance to view this area again.

    I was the last Office Commanding 50 Command (later 50 Hong Kong) Workshop before the workshop moved from this location at Sham Shui Po in Kowloon to Borneo Lines, Sek Kong in the New Territories in 1984. In my time, all the huts at the back of the workshop were replaced by civilian apartment blocks but the main HQ, Armourers shop, MT, Optronic, A & G and B Vehicle repair buildings were still in use, as was the “Carver Club” recreational building. The move was marked by a unit relay run, carrying the Wilkinson Sword of Peace, from Sham Shui Po to Sek Kong.
