AbstractThis technical note explains why Pillbox No 3 at Wong Nai Chung Gap was not operating during the contest for Wong Nai Chung Gap on 19 December 1941. The explanation is based on digital analysis of data obtained by post war aerial photos, survey maps and field surveys. This is the first professional mapping exercise for the battlefield of Wong Nai Chung Gap. Some interesting discoveries in field surveys confirm the authenticity of features depicted in a Japanese portrait of the Gap.
