Sha Tim Police Station. I led a police raid on a drug den in a small village nearby. I didn’t realize it until the deed was done, that I had put my life in danger.

Looking towards Hong Kong from Sha Tin chapel. Hong Kong is on the other side of the mountain. My companion and rode over the mountain to Kowloon, and were greeted at mission home by the mission president who became flabbergasted at what we had done. It was a holiday, and our seniors traded companions, and we went on a bike ride. His name was Terry Jeffers, and he like me, was in good enough shape to ride the distance. The mission president hurredly sent us on our way back to Sha Tin .

Me at the organ of St Peter’s Church in Cradley, West Midlands. The organ was built by the famous John Compton Organ Company Ltd as job number A188 and installed here in 1933. It is typical of Compton organs with a detached stopkey console and built on the “unit” principal with 6 ranks of pipes all enclosed behind an ornamental grille. The specification reads: PEDAL Sub Bass 32′ Open Bass 16′ Bourdon 16′ Flute 8′ Flute 4′ Trombone 16′ Trumpet 8′ Great to Pedal Swell to Pedal GREAT Bourdon 16′ First Open Diapason 8′ Second Open Diapason 8′ Hohl Flute 8′ Salicional 8′ Octave 4′ Flute 4′ Salicet 4′ Twelfth 2.2/3′ Fifteenth 2′ Acuta II Trumpet 8′ Swell to Great SWELL Contra Salicional 16′ Second Open Diapason 8′ Hohl Flute 8′ Gemshorn 8′ Salicional 8′ Flute 4′ Gemshorn 4′ Gemshorn 2′ Larigot 1.1/3′ Cymbale III Trombone 16′ Trumpet 8′ Clarion 4′ Tremulant ACCESSORIES 4 thumb pistons to Great 4 thumb pistons to Swell 4 toe pistons to Pedal 1 reverser thumb piston – Great to Pedal 1 reverser thumb piston – Swell to Pedal 1 reverser thumb piston – Swell to Great 1 balanced expression pedal – Organ 1 balanced expression pedal – Crescendo Double touch canceller to each department Ventil switches Voltmeter Im playing the hymn “Praise to the Lord” to give the idea of what the organ sounds like.
