An Englishman’s Adventures in the Hong Kong Marine Police 英國人在香港水警的歷險記

Les Bird’s memoir A Small Band of Men: An Englishman’s Adventures in the Hong Kong Marine Police follows him and his cohorts through 20 years of gripping crime-fighting stories. Bird joined the Hong Kong Marine Police in 1976 during a period of rapid change, and led his men in combat with growing organized crime in the years leading up to the handover back to China in 1997. As a senior officer, he dealt with highly sensitive issues including refugees fleeing Vietnam and the smuggling of guns, drugs, people and luxury goods to and from mainland China. He recounts some of these tales, accompanied by a backdrop of fascinating photographs, in conversation with Annemarie Evans of RTHK. In ENGLISH.
