孖指徑戰地遺跡 Smugglers’ Ridge War Relics
資源庫

孖指徑山坡位於金山郊野公園,附近一帶保留了不少戰時遺跡。遺跡屬於醉酒灣防線的一部份,建於1930年代,全長18公里,沿路有不少以混凝土和鋼筋築成的防禦設施,以盡量拖延日軍進攻,待艦隊抵港支援。

其中不得不提的重要據點,是位於孖指徑北部的城門棱堡,又名城門碉堡,築有砲兵觀察所、機槍堡、戰壕和以倫敦街道命名的連接地道。其中一條地道刻有「若林隊占領」,若林東一是當年攻佔城門碉堡的日軍隊長。

可惜最終因防守鬆懈和人手嚴重不足,日軍只用了數小時便成功佔據碉堡,對整場香港保衛戰帶來重要影響。

Smugglers’ Ridge is situated in Kam Shan Country Park, near which many relics from the Second World War have been preserved. Built in the 1930s, this 18-km War Relics Trail formed part of a defence line, known as the Gin Drinkers Line. Many reinforced concrete structures were built along the trail for military defence. They were intended to hold back the Japanese army before the supporting fleet arrived.
  
An important defence point that must be mentioned is the Shing Mun Redoubt, located on the north end of Smugglers’ Ridge. It consists of an artillery observation post, pillboxes, firing trenches, and a network of tunnels named after the streets of London. Included in the redoubt is the name Wakabayashi Toichi, a commander of the Japanese army who led the invasion of the redoubt. After the attack, the phrase “Captured by Wakabayashi’s unit” was carved on the wall of one of the tunnels.
  
Given the loose defence and a serious shortage of soldiers on the front line, it only took the Japanese army a few hours to capture the redoubt. The loss of the redoubt had a significant impact on the Battle of Hong Kong.
