Hong Kong Police Walt

#1
Chaps I have a feeling I have a Walt out here in the "hot sandy place with lots of expensive cars". We have a cnut who lives a few doors down from us who says he is ex RHK Police and some other stuff. He is now the Chief Strategic Officer for a very prominent company out here.

I want to see what he has to say on his service, but I am naturally not ex RHK, so was wondering if any ARRSE's who were could help me?

I would like to ask him some questions that only you would know if you served.

Or as we do on our other Walts a name check?

He should be able to rattle off some of the the main triads - Sun Yee On, Wo Sing Wo, the 14K and Wo On Lok without any thought.

He should also know some of the main ranks - 49'er, Red Pole, Straw Sandal, Incense Master.

All ex-pat HK cops have to learn Cantonese, so he should smack you if you say "due lay low mow" to him - 'Go and feck your mother'. The local slang for cops is "chai low".

I'm probably seeing at least one current ex-pat HK cop for beers in the next day or so, so I'll ask them for some more questions.

i thank you.

The ranks, they are nick names?

As a newbie to ARRSE, can I ask a question. Why the obsession with getting people to prove they are what they say they are? I can, to an extent, understand the vitriol with which people are viewed when they say they served when they haven't, given the fact that soldiers are dying on a daily basis. But a Hong Kong cop? If he wants to big himself up then surely he's the one that's going to take the shit when it all goes belly-up. Does it really affect your life to the extent where you need to expend your time and effort on checking him out?

It's just a personal opinion, that's all.

Try seeing how he feels about 'Big Spender' or knows how he came a-cropper? :)

It's internet related. See number 150 things killed by internet

1) The art of polite disagreement
While the inane spats of YouTube commencers may not be representative, the internet has certainly sharpened the tone of debate. The most raucous sections of the blogworld seem incapable of accepting sincerely held differences of opinion; all opponents must have "agendas".

Previously in real non-cyber life, if someone was a boring, bluffing cnut one would be forced in to a number of different courses of action:
a. Ignore and avoid
b. Deck him (if smaller)
c. Ambush when leaving bar (if bigger)
d. Promote to field rank and send off to be SO2 Seagulls Benbecula (Officers' mess option only)

The anonymity of the internet and ability to post without directly engaging brain is great for ensuring that any minor disagreements or gross claims of being the 3rd man on the balcony can roll on and on. Google James Shortt and see how many arrse hits come up!
It can also gives meaning to life for some, especially if your only companionship is marine avians and the only view out of the office window is the north atlantic

Mate ask him if he knows what the acronym ICAC stands for?

If he's an old scottish chap formerly RM prior to HKP I wouldn't push your walt finding agenda too far :)

Ask him if he knows what´s number 53 on the menu at Yan Toh Heen at the Intercontinental. If he says Paella, the man´s a hopeless fraud.

I´d love to be a fly on the wall at the great interrogation - it reminds me of Gareth Keenan Investigates. By the way, do you bring your lunch to work in a mess tin?

It's Independent not International but ICAC actually stands for 'I Cannot Accept Cheques' or 'Interfering with Chinese Ancient Customs'.

You've got to love that epilepsy-inducing website, don't you? I particularly liked

With the support of the Government and the community, Hong Kong has now become one of the cleanest places in the world.
Well I suppose some of the streets are beautifully swept.

For all its faults the Government of HK puts Brown and his cronies to shame.

Is he a little anglo chinese chap? I met such a person years ago in the ACF and he was an oriental Mr Benn. Had been in the HK Police, The City of London Police, OTC at Oxford, RNR London Port and badged Green Jackets in the ACF, he simply had to go out and buy all the crazy mess kit they wear. We used to call him the The uniform Collector and joked he had a special bulk discount with Sketchleys

The kids used to laugh at him. Fcuk, so did the adults come to think of it. He was fcuking useless too.

Sorry been a while, 88 was the last time I was there. Clearly I would of failed that test then. Bugger, so much for my cunning plan.

You could ask him if he knows "What are Fokkies in the Cockloft?" Depending on age he is "which floor was POL/MIL on in Argyle St" or "what religious artefact was in the TSB office ?" There again if you PM me with a name I will ring up a mate in Victoria.....

PS Walts have been known to obtain money by percuniary deception from a variety of charities :(

He will also know about Peter Godber, the bent HK cop (although back then apparently they ALL were) who's actions eventually lead to the forming of the ICAC - Independent Commission Against Corruption

Or even I Can Accept Cash

Other questions may be:

From which side of the bar in MKT Border Police bar could you see the border crossing
When was Josephine (Red Lips) born
Which was the best curry house in Sek Kong
Which parts of OC MKT police body were not his own?
