A short extract

"Eventually we move to Sham Shui Po. Quite a nice flat with a huge balcony. Lorraine and Derek Napier lived in the same block. It was handy for Stonecutters Island were we used to go swimming. Hong Kong was a great for sun bathing and swimming. I believe that that year the swimming pool was kept open an extra month because our Battalion was not acclimatized. The parade when the Hackles changed to red and white was great but also sad. There was a big ball at the Peninsula Hotel I did not much enjoy those do's I loved to dance but Brian had two left feet.
We only stayed in HK for 9 months until Brian was posted back to UK. To St. Georges Barracks, Sutton Coldfield. I don't think I was in HK long enough to get bored. Life was what you made it. Considering in the 9 moths we moved home 4 times, I had not got time to get bored.

Ronnie and Rose Wilkinson travelled with us and I think it was Bob Hope and his wife. Ronnie and Rose came to Sutton Coldfield but I don't know what happened to the Hopes. Of course St. George's Barrack was the Depot for RRF."
