Whampoa Dock Company vessels

Submitted by Daisy1942 on Fri, 02/24/2023 - 08:03

Hi All,

I am looking for a picture of the water boat Daisy or her sister ship Heather.  They were built for Hammer & Co Singapore circa 1937/8.  Daisy successfully escaped the Fall of Singapore taking a group of 13 or 14 men to the Djambi River mouth where she was scuttled.  The Japanese raised her and used her as a dumb lighter.  Post WW2 she was returned to Hammer & Co.

Any information about Daisy would be very much appreciated.

Dear Gwulo Friends

I am writing a biography of Sir Cecil Clementi (金文泰) to be published by Hong Kong University Press.

I would be interested in hearing from anyone who cares to share information, documentation, photographs, comment or opinion on the subject of Sir Cecil, his life and times.

Please feel free to contact me on grahamdhutchings@gmail.com

With thanks and regards


Cargo/passenger service between Singapore and Hong Kong in early eighties

Submitted by Michael G. on Thu, 04/01/2021 - 23:07

Hi there,

I read that there was once a cargo/passenger boat service between Hong Kong and Singapore and I'd like to know if you could tell me more about it, especially for the year 1980.

Could you for instance tell me or direct me to a site where I could find the timetables of such a service, the name(s) of the ship(s), the cost, the duration and so on?

Once again, I'd be very glad to hear from you,

Lovely Easter to you all,
