In this photograph taken on December 3, 2016, a remembrance poppy is seen on the observation turret of pillbox JLO1 at Jardine's Lookout, which was manned by members of the Hong Kong Volunteer Defence Corps and Canada's Winnipeg Grenadiers during the Battle of Hong Kong, along the territory's Wong Nai Chung Gap trail. High up on a hillside in the south of Hong Kong, shaded beneath dense green foliage, are the pockmarked remnants of World War II pillboxes, a reminder of the city's failed attempt to fend off a Japanese invasion. It is 75 years since Hong Kong fell -- less than three weeks after the Japanese first attacked what was then a British colony. / AFP / TENGKU Bahar / TO GO WITH HongKong Japan politics WWII (Photo credit should read TENGKU BAHAR/AFP/Getty Images)
