Manchuria - "Toanchin Incident" and "Xingkai Incident"?

Post by Sawpatin » 19 Nov 2019 13:51

I came across mention of two border incidents in Manchuria which were said to involve the Manchukuo Navy/River Defence Fleet, but the source didn't provide any details on them. The first is the "Toanchin Incident" of May 1939, and the second is the "Xingkai Incident" of May 1941.

This website (http://www.marinavasca.eu/en/ficha-otra ... id=36&o=14) mentions an incident in "Donganzhen" in May 1939, where one Manchukuoan patrol boat was sunk and another captured, and also mentions an incident on Xingkai Lake in May 1942, where two Manchukuoan patrol boats were machine-gunned by Soviet aircraft. Maybe these are the same incidents and the source that I read just got the names/dates wrong? I'd appreciate any further details or clarification on these events.

They are different incidents. See my reply in your another post.

The details of Toanchin Incident are below.

I cannot find any site on Xingkai Incident. It was described on the following book.
