  • There is only one monument to the victory of World War I and World War II Britain, with some words engraved on it, opposite Queen's Square, near Queen's Road, just north of the HSBC building.

  • Hong Kong is so hot during the day that it's a good place to walk at night. It was a great time to walk because it was cool and cool at night.

  • It is an almost exact replica of the Cenotaph in Whitehall, London, which was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens and unveiled in 1920, two years after the end of the First World War. The Cenotaph was unveiled in 1923 to commemorate the dead of the First World War. Initially, it was simply inscribed with the words “The Glorious Dead.” The dates 1939-1945 were later added to honour victims of the Second World War. In the 1970s, eight Chinese characters 英魂不朽浩氣長存, meaning “May their martyred souls be immortal, and their noble spirits endure,” were carved on the side of the Cenotaph as a belated recognition of those who lost their lives during the Japanese invasion.
  • Here stands a solemn monument to remember the supreme sacrifice made by the servicemen during WW1 (1914-1918) and WW2 (1939-1945). Salute!
