The Cenotaph on Central. Hong Kong

This cenotaph stands on a square in what is known as Central (Hong Kong Island) and was photographed in March 2008. I visited the SAI WAN War Cemetery in 2010 where many of those involved in the Battle for Hong Kong are buried, and this ties in with this cenotaph.

The local museum has a very interesting display relating to the occupation of the islands and surrounding mainland by the Japanese. The two images below are only indicative of the museum. 

And at Sai Wan I saw the results of the occupation first hand.
