West Q.F. Battery

Posted on December 30, 2021 / 10
Listing Type : Coastal Battery
Location : Hong Kong

West Q.F. Battery is now known as Lei Yue Mun Pass Battery.  It was completed in 1892 and consists of  two casemated 6-pdr Hotchkiss gun emplacements.  The two emplacements are linked by a concrete corridor and there is a magazine half way along to supply the guns.

This type of casemated position for 6-pdr guns is not common in British works, but appears similar to Syriam Minefield Battery built about the same time.
