ss Changsha - sailing between Australia and HK
My recollections are that my family sailed from Hong Kong to Australia in late 1955 on a ship named the ss Changsha.
It is just odd I cannot find any record of the Changsha sailing at that time (1950s). Records I've found put a ship known as the ss Changsha as being new around 1886 and she was sunk in the war in 1941. The ship we sailed on was certainly not that old! Perhaps another ship was later named the Changsha?
Does anyone have knowledge of ships sailing between Australia and HK who can enlighten me - or perhaps sailed themselves on the ss Changsha in the 1950s?
