Shipbuilding in Hong Kong, 1942
Elizabeth Ride: I’m afraid this material is very raw, but I hope will be of interest and value to those researching ship building and shipyards during the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong in World War Two.
I apologise for the the state of some of the documents, which were obviously attacked by white ants while they were stored in GHQ India.
I have only included information about shipbuilding in HK, not repairs carried out at the yards.

The Index contains many articles using BAAG reports from WW2. And about shipyards and industry in HK during that time.
