Andrew DUNCAN [1902-????]
My Father, a Ship's Engineer, was on the 'SS Sunning' out of Hong Kong, when she was pirated, also In 1926, after leaving Shanghai; sailing as 3rd Engineer. Much was written about this in the South China Morning Post, where a Ben Wylie, (his younger brothers future Father-in-Law) was (or was later to become) the General Manager of the South China Morning Post (referred to by Phil Cracknell in a Contributions on your Gwulo site)
We still have many photos, printed originally in the Hong Kong Telegraph, Sat 20th Nov 1926 - (photos by Mee Cheung) when the scuttled "SS Sunning" returned to Hong Kong, after which the Pirates were recaptured, after setting the ship of fire. They were all later hanged in a Public Execution, all fully covered in great detail In the SCMP and no doubt the Hong Kong Telegraph newspaper referred to above.
In later years, the detailed story of the "Sunning Piracy" was fully serialised, in the Scottish Sunday Mail Newspaper, March 26th and April 2nd 1978, written by a Tom McArthur, after interviewing my Father about his recollections of the incident in 1926.
