Chi Keung Chang was born in 1966 in Hong Kong. He was enlisted into the British military in 1986 and had served for four years.

After completing his military training as a recruit he was sent to the Dragon Company where he worked as a regimental policeman. He also took part in hunting down illegal immigrants.

He also joined both the shooting team and the ceremonial guard. On ceremonial occasion, he was responsible for ushering visitors into the barracks, who would then go on for an inspection of troops in the military parade. Apart from his work in the military, he also voluntarily took on works in civilian society. For example Chang helped maintain the law and order in a tennis match alongside the Hong Kong Police.

Chang retired from the army in 1997 due to the transfer of sovereignty over Hong Kong to China. Since leaving the army, he has kept in touch with many of his old colleagues and friends in the military.
