An Exhibition Commemorating the End of The First World War – Hong Kong

Posted: July 26th, 2018 | 1 Comment »

I imagine this is worth a visit if you’re in Hong Kong….

Entitled The Great War at Its Centenary, the exhibition reveals the situation on the battlefield, reflects on the cost of war, and how it has changed world order, including the far-reaching impact WWI had on modern China and Hong Kong on political, military and social levels.

Highlight exhibits include a postcard sent from a war prisoner in the Hung Hom internment camp to Germany, a postcard showing warships anchored in Victoria Harbour before the outbreak of World War I, a Shanghai pictorial that illustrates the military actions of the Allies during the war, and a .303″ British Lee-Enfield rifle used in the War.

Details

When: 15 Jun 2018 – 30 Jan 2019 Where: Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defence – 175 Tung Hei Rd – Shau Kei Wan
