If one takes a trip to Ho Sheung Heung (near Sheung Shui) and climb the hill behind the village (above the riding stables) you can look into the next small valley. I recall that there may have been a rifle range there during the British colonial period. On the hillside above the the rifle range (if it really existed outside my memory) there was a large mural left behind by the military. I can’t clearly read the inscription on my photos (circa 2001-2), but it looks something like a number followed perhaps by ‘battalion’ under either an engineer motif or a bugle. All in all, a pretty useless post really, but I hope someone out there knows enough to help me turn this into a prizewinner.
Phil’s interest prompted me to google around a bit. The bugle, or hunting horn is quite common in British military insignia, but the ‘battalion rifles’ isn’t so common. The 10th gurkhas had both, but they also featured the kukris which aren’t on the hillside motif. Here’s a similar badge shown at the Imperial War Museum website.
