The Elusive Plaques at Sham Shui Po

As you may have read elsewhere, finding the location of the Sham Shui Po barracks and the plaques that have been placed there was not easy. To make this trek less challenging for future explorers, we've provided some directions and a map.

The easiest way to get there is to get on the subway (MTR), head North, and get off at the Cheung Sha Wan stop (one north of Sham Shui Po).

For even more information and a great story, visit Allan Mondor's web site

If anyone has any background information on these plaques please contact me. Their existence is not well documented. Any photos taken during the dedication ceremony would certainly be welcome.

Thanks to Ken Skelton who provided the map information and to Allan Mondor for documenting this activity so well!
