Re: Military Prison on Stonecutters
30 Sig Regt used the prison as accommodation during an exercise in the later half of the 1970's. We were practicing long range HF radio communications using the E-21 set. I recall the old rifle range being used as the transmitter site; it was the only flat piece of land capable of suporting an 80ft mast and 500 feet of copper cable that we used as the transmit antenna. I also remember RCT personnel ferrying us to and from Kowloon side. Fond memories of a time before the cold war ended and deploying overseas was more likely to mean an exercise than an operation.
