Welcome to the revised site!

We have finally published the revised site, and hope you enjoy it. The "Search" function at the bottom of the home page does not appear to be effective, and we are working on this.


Please let us know if we can make improvements. For example, it is difficult to judge if the photos are too light or too dark on other people's screens.


Any comments or suggestions will be welcome.

Just found this site when looking for information on these scale model ships produced by a Japanese manufacturer - you can image the amount of translating I had to do back and forth! Made doubly hard by Wade Giles interpretations. From the instructions I knew they were constructed in Shanghai and owened by Nisshin Kisen.

Anyway what a great site with wonderful photographs. It must have been hard work putting this together.

She was sunk by air attack in December 1943. Including vessels built for other mercantile owners and two vessels for the Chinese Navy we have counted ten of this 1000 grt class in all, listed on pp.58-60 of our Little Upper River list. Two which survived to the 1970s are covered in pp.33-35 and pp 36-38 of our Changjiang (Yan…

The tugboat Edith (1905-41) of Whampoa Dock was sunk on 25th July 1932 after collision with the ship Tin Yat. This was why it was rebuilt in 1935. The Hong Kong Telegraph 26-07-1932

Thank you, very good to learn of this incident. It is frustrating that we are still unable to find any photo of this tug before or after reconstruction, even though she served HWD for a long time. Regards, Howard & Stephen

Peter,

Thank you for your comment, which is a valid one. We will seek to add a list of abbreviations to the site soon.

Reading sometimes is frustrating as there are many abbreviations . Could you add a abbreviation list to the website? for example NFI
