Sat February 28 2015 - Shing Mun Redoubt battlefield site visit

posted 5 Feb 2015, 22:55 by John Leighton

We will join with Asia’s Finest Old & Bold to a visit to the Shing Mun Redoubt lead by our own Martin Heyes. There are two options to meet up for this one:

 

(a) at 11:00 hrs at Tsuen Wan MTR station at Exit D from where we will get a Green Minibus;

 

(b) at 11:45 hrs at the Pineapple Dam at the top of Shing Mun Reservoir Rd, for those not taking the MTR.

For those in category (a), we will take the minibus up to the dam, meet up with those in (b) then walk to the southern tip of the Reservoir where people could have lunch (bring your own) while Martin will  give a talk & distribute handouts etc. before walking up to the Redoubt.

People are advised to: -

(a) wear old, scruffy clothes and bring a change of clothes as we will be scrambling thro' tunnels, (changing facilities are available); and 

(b) bring a torch - very necessary if going into the tunnels.

Cleansing ale available afterwards at the kiosk at the Pineapple Dam.

Please reply to the Secretary if you will join

 

Looking ahead to June we have booked the SOs Mess on the evening of 19th June for an OMRS Hong Kong Branch
