BAAG records of shipping in HK during 1944-45 – August 1944 ships under repair 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 (KWIZ #70) is subtitled, Other shipping under repair in Kowloon Docks. I am presuming it covers Aug 1944 as are previous subsections.

Ships mentioned are the Minkaku Maru – harbour vehicular ferry, Special 44 -an oil depot vessel and powered cross river craft Nos. D4174 and D3024.

Image of these ships would be helpful.
