MULES IN HONG KONG
IP: 90.156.104.130


Hi All,

I have recently been reviewing XX 1 LF tour of Hong Kong 1968. During one of our two-week deployments to the border close to Sha Tau Kok (famous open border crossing and incident), Sia Kung Peninsula, was an entrenched position called 'Lone Tree Hill'. I recall the RASC Mule Troop moving stores from my position further up the mountainside. The Mule Troop did this on a regular basis. A statement follows “My life, and that of the regiment, was saved by our mules. We were so dependent upon them to deliver the goods of war. They survived terrible, wet battle conditions, better than the horses. A reflection from 1914-18. Therefore, I'm interested to know if any HK veterans remember the Mule Troop and when did they disband? I'm certain their services continued way after 1968 when 4 RRF departed for Weeton (2nd Time)? Les

PS. The Mule Troop may have been based at Fan Ling, New Territories?
