Allied Chinese ShipsPrint Page
A plaque commemorates those who served on the Allied Chinese Ships during World War Two.
Following the fall of Hong Kong followed by Singapore in World War Two there were approximately 32 ships owned by the China Navigation Company (head office Hong Kong) and leased out. Six ships were requisitioned by the Royal Australian Navy, four of which became HMA `Ships` and two of which became Vitalising Supply Issuing Ships (VSIS) - store ships working with the Royal Navy in the Western Indian Ocean and the Mediterranean sea. They were manned by Royal Australian Navy personnel.
