BAAG records of shipping in HK during 1944-45 – August 1944 ships under construction in Kowloon Docks

Elizabeth Ride has British Army Aid Group (BAAG) records of shipping movements for 1944-45 in Hong Kong during the Japanese occupation in World War Two.

This section of a report is subtitled, New ships in Kowloon Docks. I am presuming it covers Aug 1944 as are previous subsections.

Ships mentioned are cross-river craft, Type F Cargo Vessels, the Akatsuki (No.3) and Gyoko Maru.

Image of these ships would be helpful.
