Soldier, Soldier - Robson Green (1992) - Lok Ma Chau Loop, Lok Ma Chau

Okay I'm being a bit cheeky here because it's not the location we see on screen but rather the area that can be seen on the board at the back of the room. Here's the grab.

The board at the back lists the area as somewhere called "Stony Spur". I have no idea if the local British Army parlance described the area as such - and I hope someone who actually served on border duty will be able to enlighten us all - but it seems to me that the big bit sticking down is in fact the area that is known as the Lok Ma Chau Loop.

The area has been the source of some controversy of late because even though it is still officially on the other side of the border, the HK Govt (no doubt salivating about all the bribes they will get for awarding contracts to various developers) agreed to take over he management of the place because it sits on our side of the Shenzhen river. It's...complicated.
