Was much Allied shipping lost in the immediate aftermath of Dec 6/7 1941

Post by Felix C » 23 May 2020 00:17

at Hong Kong, Rangoon and Singapore and other ports in the Far East?
I was reading where transports came into Singapore with Australian troops shortly before surrendering. HK being further up the coast must have been overwhelmed immediately.

Did ships flee to Macau?

Did most of the shipping in Manila Bay escape?

I imagine Merchant Marine Associations for various countries would have listing of losses.

If you cannot follow the trail of breadcrumbs you'll expect other people to do the work for you.

I did not ask for breadcrumbs not ask anyone to do my work. I merely asked a question as many do here. I have seen you comment over the years which do not add any useful information. I ask you to desist if not providing actual information requested.

You can find the information if you do the work. If you don't do the work why would you expect someone else to do it for you?

To be fair, though, providing some links here would at least be nice.

The IJN and Air Force were totally preoccupied with their military objectives and did not pursue or target individual merchant ships. The vast majority of supply & reinforcement ships arrived at Singapore unscathed, and most left without any problems as well. It was only the last minute departures of Feb 13th/14th from Singapore that suffered heavy losses. No major allied port was captured "by surprise" which allowed shipping to make their escape. I would expect that allied merchant losses in the immediate aftermath of Pearl Harbor to be "minimal"
