    It's good that there will be some representation from China! I wonder whatever happened to the Chinese seamen, who were forcibly "repatriated" after the end of WW2,once we had no further use for them?

    Was there any WWII shipping from Liverpool to China?

    Is there a significance to China being specifically mentioned in the story?

    As an aside,I think,but there have been previous posts on the predicament of the chinese/asian crews who were employed in any oriental voyages.
