Description

Detailed map of Hong Kong, issued shortly after the conclusion of World War II.

The map provides great detail of Hong Kong and surrounding islands and the New Territories. A note in the legend at lower right states: "the area of Chinese territory on this sheet is compiled from material of doubtful value, but is probably a fair general representation of the country." The topography is indicated with contour lines. Printed at lower left "Geographical Section, General Staff, No. 3961, Published by War Office, 1936. 3rd Edition (Grid Correction) 1946." Printed at lower right "Reprinted from HIND 1015, Mar. 1946 Edition, by O.S. 1949."
