Yangtse River gunboats on Naval History
« on: May 09, 2012, 08:08:03 pm »
Anyone who has worked on the log books of the Yangste gunboats might like to read
Liz Randall's fascinating documents, now posted on Naval History, concerning her grandfather, Captain Williamson,
his life on the Yangste and the so-called Wanhsien Incident of 1926, which involved a number of RN gunboats.
Captain Williamson also served on one or more of the armed merchant cruisers in the current Old Weather list.
