Deployment of troops to Shanghai early 1927

Post by jerryasher » 22 Jan 2020 02:23

Can anyone round this out? A company was sent from Indo-China to Shanghai. Can anyone confirm that they were carried by the General Metzinger and may have arrived on January 15th. In March a second company==possibly carried on the Amazone on its regular schedule. Finally in April, a much larger group--800 men including Europeans and perhaps light tanks on the Chenonceaux arriving on April 12th. Please correct for units, dates, transportation and equipment. Many thanks in advance.
