'Off Time' with a delay in route back to Hawaii after a 90 day assignment in Vietnam. Abbott took leave in Hong Kong and visited some of the sites with several guys on R&R from Vietnam. I am seen in this footage toward the end, at a gate that takes onee into China. Abbott believes this area was called the New Territories. The Hong Kong government was developing a residential area along the China/Hong Kong border.
