Congratulations! The large island is Lantau and the small island and the village are Tai O.

The Battle of Ty-Ho Bay was fought the same year as Battle of Leotung which was a British battle as the USS Macedonian ran low on coal and didn't take part (although I believe she did loan her guns to a Chinese boat that was supporting the Brits).

The better known island, half the size is, of course, Hong Kong Island. The famous statue of Buddha is the Big Buddha at Po Lin monastery. The houses on stilts are Pang uk.
