Soldier, Soldier - Robson Green (1992) - Lai Chi Kok Amusement Park, Kowloon

Time to tackle the remaining episode of the HK-based Soldier, Soldier series. The last episode was called, fittingly, The Last Post and details the last few remaining days and weeks for the battalion in HK. Whilst the boys are off playing wargames with the Royal Marines, the wives head off to the Sung Dynasty Village that used to be part of the Lai Chi Kok Amusement Park.

Interestingly, this is almost the exact same view captured by Andrew Suddaby in his 1980's era pictures of HK that can be found over on Gwulo.com. Having missed out on visiting this place when I had the chance (it was demolished in the late 90's to make way for several residential developments) I couldn't identify where it was until Andrew uploaded his pictures, so many thanks Andrew!
