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.
