HAKUSA at Shanghai in 1937
HAKUSA began her long life as a cargo ship until she was acquired by
the Chinese Government in 1931. She then served as a patrol boat in the
Chinese Navy until captured by the Japanese in 1937. Converted to a survey
vessel, she ended the war as a transport. In Jun '45, an American
submarine sank HAKUSA off Indochina.
