A Sikh guard 錫克守衛

Standing armed and erect, Sikh guards were familiar figures outside the city's prestigious jewellery stores, entrances to banks and the portals of its major hotels. Valued in the security industry for their forbidding mien, incorruptibility and reputation as fierce fighters. Sikhs in Hong Kong have a proud tradition of service - initially - in the colony's army and police force.
